We wish to give a heartfelt round of thank you to everyone, and all those from around Saskatoon who cleaned up the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area [west side] and all those people who helped with the clean up at George Genereux Urban Regional Park on Saturday October 3. An amazing job was done at both urban regional parks in the City of Saskatoon making them a great deal safer and much more enjoyable as we admire the amazing autumn colours of the forest. This is indeed a city we can be proud of! Clean ups are instantaneous ways of creating a visible and tangible difference in the protection of our city’s environment.
The first Monday of October, Monday October 5 is World Habitat Day, and truly, what an amazing difference to the habitat of the semi-wilderness areas out at George Genereux Urban Regional park and at Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area! Thank you kindly again for everyone who came out!
Thanks kindly to Shell Station at 11th Street and Dawes Avenue, Petro Canada on 11th Street and Witney Avenue, Boston Pizza Blairmore, Poor Boys Gas and Food Bar 11th Street and Sk Hwy 7 and Canadian Tire Confederation. These corporations indeed helped with the clean up of October 3, 2020 at George Genereux Urban Regional Park.
Additionally the Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc., City of Saskatoon, Meewasin Valley Authority, Fatlanders Fatbike Brigade Inc. , residents from the City of Saskatoon all showed up alongside a journalist who all took part in the clean up occurring on October 3, 2020.
Please be aware that the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area and George Genereux have some magnificent and beautiful elm trees. Please follow guidelines for pruning, and please dispose of any elm leaves and branches in bags for the landfill. Thanks very much
