Richard St. Barbe Baker Is Essential For Your Success. Read This To Find Out Why

“The spirit of the man known as Richard St. Barbe Baker is the common force that has drawn us all together.” says Melissa J. Hadley, “It is not his knowledge of forestry, but rather a sharing in this vision of the greening of the earth that we celebrate here today. We admire St. Barbe the forester, for his foresight in the perception of a new forestry ethic.”1.

“He was very kind-hearted and often befriended rather hopeless types of people, with some sort of weakness that prevent their being able to earn their living. He would give them work to do in the office of the Man of the Trees, in order to build up their self-confidence. I never heard him speak ill of anyone; on the contrary the world seemed to be peopled with his personal friends.”2.

“Just imagine for a moment what it would be like if you really knew that everything you do counts – which, ironically, on a cosmic level, is probably true. If you knew that to be a fact, in a very concrete, immediate way, would you live your life differently? Just today, for example, how might you have related your children and loved ones if you knew that everything you say and do does affect them deeply and indelibly?”3.

Well, that has indeed happened in the case of Richard St. Barbe Baker. Time after time, the people who have met or encountered Richard St. Barbe Baker were affected emotionally, and profoundly. To this very day, they remember the moment when Richard St. Barbe Baker came into their lives.

So, it is always good to stop, take stock, and wonder, “What would Richard St. Barbe Baker say?”

And here is how to sum it all up in Richard St. Barbe Baker’s words on connections to the earth. “The fate of an individual or a nation will always be determined by the degree of his or its harmony with the forces and laws of nature and the universe. Man is not alone in the universe but is surrounded by sources of power, harmony and knowledge…Our individual evolution is a job that has to be carried out day by day by each individual himself. It is a life-long task.”

There are Friends of the Trees, who knew and encountered Richard St. Barbe Baker, around the world folks have come together on the same stage, they are ecologists and conservationists, authors and climate change consultants. What do they have to say about Richard St. Barbe Baker, and the encounter he had on their lives? Many people have heard of David Suzuki, David Attenborough, or Greta Thunberg.  Richard St. Barbe Baker was the first global conservationist and humanitarian, and “he had the unmistakable quality of believing that his contributions counted”3.  This is our way to remember his international legacy.  International Online PremiereThe Legacy of Saskatoon’s Secret Forest Saturday November 6, 2021 at 1:00 pm CST (UTC-6)

The Secrets To Finding World Class Parks for Richard St. Barbe Baker Quickly

“It took a long time to find a suitable site for such an important memorial, but eventually, a seven acre site was found right in the heart of England, in part of the famous Charnwood Forest.” It was here that the Richard St. Barbe Baker received its dedication ceremony in 1985, the International Year of the Forest. Well over a hundred people came for the ceremony and the official opening. His Royal Highness, the Patron of the International Tree Foundation [ITF], the Prince of Wales paid the tributes in the official opening. Greetings were brought from co-founder Senior Chief Josiah Njonjo, and ITF branches worldwide sent greetings. HRH unveiled a magnificent plaque, and planted a fine Canadian Oak, in respect of Richard St. Barbe Baker’s Canadian connections. 1.

This was a celebration which Richard St. Barbe Baker would have surely approved of, “for he said to a lady once who wanted to plant a tree in his honour, “Madam, don’t plant a tree, plant a wood.” Well, in England they have! 1.

And, that’s not all, here in Saskatoon we have honoured the Loving Father of Trees, Baba Wya Miti with a 326 acre afforestation area in the city of Saskatoon! Following their meeting of October 19, 1978 the , the Parks and Recreation Board resolved to put forward the recommendation for the naming of this afforestation area as the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area (urban regional park). On October 30th, 1978, City Council received the proposal, and on January 4, 1979, Council approved the naming of this Urban Regional Park, which was part of the first 660 acres set out as “forest in perpetuity” by A.L. Ligtermoet, Assistant Parks Superintendent in 1972.

What an honour and tribute for Richard St. Barbe Baker, the Loving Father of Trees. Along with the recommendation, the Parks and Recreation Board submitted a number of notable biographies and commemorations bestowed upon Richard St. Barbe Baker worldwide.

There is a forest in Saskatoon. It is a secret forest which no one had ever heard about. This forest is named after Richard St. Barbe Baker because he planted trees, and here in this park hundreds upon thousands of trees were planted. It was a perfect match. Forest visitors hearing the story of Richard St. Barbe Baker fall in love with the Saskatoon forest and want to protect it. They want to make the forest as special and magnificent as this great man was special and magnificent.

The Hidden Mystery Behind Richard St. Barbe Baker

Many people have heard of David Suzuki, David Attenborough, or Greta Thunberg.  Richard St. Barbe Baker was the first global conservationist and humanitarian.  This is our way to remember his international legacy.  International Online PremiereThe Legacy of Saskatoon’s Secret Forest Saturday November 6, 2021 at 1:00 pm CST (UTC-6) 

Richard St. Barbe Baker was an enigma within an enigma. He had a belief system he held onto and followed his dreams unfailingly. It always seemed to Baker that all of his dreams came true.

Richard St. Barbe Baker travelled to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to take the first steps in founding a new school of Deep Ecology at the University of Saskatchewan. Robert White had written a thesis on Deep Ecology. Upon reading said thesis, Richard St. Barbe Baker desired to have as a seat at the University of Saskatchewan.

“I picture village communities of the future living in valleys protected by sheltering trees on the high ground. They will have fruit and nut orchards and live free from disease and enjoy leisure, liberty and justice for all, living with a sense of their one-ness with the earth and with all living things.”~Richard St. Barbe Baker

Baker found that through his work with the Children of the Green Earth, that the tree planting involving children is a most excellent medium for peacemaking. “My father was born here and died here, and so did his father, and they saw many hard things…But they did not have to see the end of the forest, as I do, the dispersal of our companions. This task has fallen on me and it is hard, very hard.”1

Richard St. Barbe Baker believed in the founding of the Children of the Green Earth as a means to heal the earth – for every child a tree. What has happened to Children of the Green Earth international organization?

Richard St. Barbe Baker believed that their should be an International Tree Foundation branch in the City of Saskatoon. This is where he had roots, and this was one of his prime imperatives.

Sadly, therefore, we see that some dreams have not heretofore come to fruition – yet. There are areas where we can still prevail and succeed to follow on in the path, footsteps and vision of Richard St. Barbe Baker.

Will the School of Deep Ecology at the University of Saskatchewan start up to fulfill Richard St. Barbe Baker’s Dreams?

Will there be an International Tree Foundation branch started in the City of Saskatoon?

As people move forward to live in oneness with the earth and all living beings, will the campaign to plant one tree for every child on the earth resume, and move forward with great gusto?

Will the mystery behind Richard St. Barbe Baker be resolved? All of his dreams do come true.

The Secret of Richard St. Barbe Baker

Many people have heard of David Suzuki, David Attenborough, or Greta Thunberg.  Richard St. Barbe Baker was the first global conservationist and humanitarian.  This is our way to remember his international legacy.  International Online Premiere:  The Legacy of Saskatoon’s Secret Forest Saturday November 6, 2021 at 1:00 pm CST (UTC-6) 

What was the secret of Richard St. Barbe Baker?

Well, he formed the Men of the Trees from the very first Dance of the Trees July 22, 1922, and not this organisation is known as the International Tree Foundation. This part is known, and not a secret.

We know that he encouraged all who joined the International Tree Foundation – who were called [from the Kikuyu of Africa] the Watu Wa Miti or forest guides to make a promise. The forest scouts, all took a solemn oath to “promise to plant ten trees a year, take care of trees everywhere, and do one good deed every day!

We know that he knew Wangaari Mathai, nobel prize laureate, and that they spoke often about the Sahara Desert reclamation. Baker took a trip in the Sahara desert, and realized that it once was a lush verdant forest. So just as in the final scene of the Planet of the Apes, it was ARRRGGGHHH! what has happened to the earth? The difference is the Planet of the Apes was a futuristic movie scenario and the Sahara Desert is a testament of the past and present.

Tree planting, nay, not just tree planting but forest planting was an imperative message from Richard St. Barbe Baker as he travelled the globe. This is not a secret, and an amazing feat of accomplishing the planting of billions and trillions of trees worldwide.

What many people don’t realize that his mission, his imperative, his modus operandi was that everyone should develop a “tree sense.” This “tree sense” is what shouldn’t be Richard St. Barbe Baker’s secret. Just as he travelled the world speaking and writing books about developing a “tree sense” so should we all today, in this era.

So, to honour the Legacy of Richard St. Barbe Baker, can you today, foster your own “tree sense?”

A real-life Saskatoon mystery.  Search for the Missing Linden!

On June 4 and 5, 1984 – also celebrating World Environment Day – Saskatoon hosted the founding conference of the Richard St Barbe Baker foundation. The conference was to promote the wise use and conservation of the world’s tree resources.

Now, then as part of the aforementioned conference ceremonies, a Linden tree, Tiliaceae, was planted at two locations in Saskatoon; Diefenbaker Center and at the west side entrance of Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area.

““Be like a tree in pursuit of your cause. Stand firm, grip hard, thrust upward. Bend to the winds of heaven..”

Richard St. Barbe Baker

el árbol de la vida

Author Roberto R. Calderón iNaturalist curator with permissions

Our humanity is inseparable from our historical moment. Ultimately our complicated existence is tied to our connection with and toward all things living.

There’s still wonder in the world. Respect for life is reinforced. Love all things associated with the large borderless online digital community of similar peoples engaged in learning and sharing knowledge and their appreciation for nature in its broadest sense—a beautifully desperate gesture, a raging hope as we course through the latest (and sixth) mass planetary extinction. And still we are awed.

We have gradually widened the circle of interest and complexity in our pursuit of this endeavor so as to grow experiential knowledge. There is and always will be much more to learn about the circle of life. We’re but one link.

What’s the name and basic range of all these life forms? It’s a compelling quest.

We are all citizens of the world living on the only planet we have. Therefore I am a citizen naturalist and amateur photographer.

Those fortunate enough to practice photography know that it is the sum of our experience. Photography is both art and science. It is faith and aesthetics; discipline and intuition. I’ve always been a shutterbug. But my work has grown; it has evolved. It is tied to the era of the digital revolution like iNaturalist.

May there always be another day to share the word and images that accompany it. It is our collective report on the planet’s life. May we share it with those we love and those we have yet to meet, kindred spirits we may yet call friends. Life is fleeting but intense. New generations await their turn at changing course.

May we always remember our place en el árbol de la vida. All life on our planet shares the same cosmic fate of the universe. We are one or none at all.

Vexillology for the National Forest Week Flag

National Forest Week The last full week of September. Maple Leaf Day the Wednesday of that week.

National Forest Week Flag Vexillology

By raising a flag, this act unites citizens across the city to recognize the value of trees and forests in our life and community. A flag raising campaign inaugurates a campaign to commemorate all the amazing benefits that our forests provide. This flag is a tribute to the role of urban forests and all forests in our life. More than one tree – a forest – is depicted inside a gold shield. This golden symbol of protection relates the value of protecting trees, rural forests and urban forests through the Official Community plans, government  departments such as  Urban Forestry, Green Infrastructure Strategy, Parks and tree bylaws. The shield of protection recognizes the value of biodiversity, nature-based solutions to climate action, and the very oxygen we breathe. The shield, stripes use the colors green and gold and the pride in the strategic goal of environmental leadership and the strategic goal of quality of life. The gold stripes symbolize the diverse cultures and areas in Canada and how much the residents appreciate a green city, country and nation. The green bands correlate with our native ecosystems and how fortunate we are that Canada and all the cities provide a beautiful green environment with trees in our parks, landscapes and boulevards – a veritable forest on the prairies, and across the nation. The double green bands resonate with the National Maple Leaf flag of Canada.  The white bands resonate with peace, hope, tranquility – and therefore, this flag might be referred to as a nation united between all the neighbourhoods as represented by the gold bands. The  protected forests and trees in our city neighbourhoods and rural countryside are flanked by two vertical green bars symbolizing our grassland prairies – boreal forests and our urban parks and forests. The gold is also the symbol of the harvest, reaping the invaluable history of ethnobotany, food forests, and the rich interdependence between the citizens of Canada historically, and the harvest of enriched health and wellness for our Nation’s residents and eco-system biodiversity presently and into the future.   The tree canopy providing shade, symbolizes the health benefits provided to residents from the cooling effect of trees during this era of climate change, and the reflection of trees in the water shows the connection between trees and water as trees raise the water table, encouraging the flow of rivers, lakes and wetlands throughout Canada.

National Forest Week Flag Raising Ceremony

Flag Raising Ceremony Mon Sep 20 2:00 show your support for Saskatoon’s urban forests – Come to City Hall!

This program for National Forest Week is brought to you by the Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas an environmental non-profit charity that was created to preserve and restore the 326-acre Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area and the 148-acre George Genereux Urban Regional Park. Our work reinforces the 1979 City Council decision designating these afforestation areas on the western fringe of Saskatoon to “be preserved in perpetuity.” They are important habitat for wildlife as well as semi-wild public spaces for recreation and nature immersion. The larger of these two areas is named after Richard St. Barbe Baker (1889-1982), who has been called the “first global conservationist” and in recognition of this he was made the first Honorary Life Member of the World Wildlife Fund in 1969. A British forester who also homesteaded and studied in Saskatoon, he dedicated his entire life unfailingly to the preservation and planting of trees and forest events.

Connect with nature, find out what is really in the forest! What will you discover? Come out and explore George Genereux Park. This event provides a snapshot of nature, ecology and the environment out at George Genereux Park in Saskatoon. It shows how healthy the environment is. It is great for young, families, youth groups. botanists, and the general public to have fun in nature. It sharpens your “Where’s Waldo?” skills and helps to become aware of your surroundings. Caterpillars, butterflies, birds, mushrooms, flowers, squirrels, are all various life forms to take pictures of with the iNaturalist app downloaded on your smart phone. It is amazing just how many of the bio-blitzes undertaken have found another species at risk to be aware of in the afforestation areas.

George Genereux Park

On the south west of the City of Saskatoon is an urban regional park named George Genereux Park at 147.8 acres in size. It is on the west side of Saskatchewan Highway 7 (the Pike Lake Highway.) The Saskatoon border loops around the quarter section. As shown on the map below, the afforestation area is a park surrounded by the neighbouring agricultural lands of the RM of Corman Park 344.

George Genereux Park just west off of the Pike Lake Highway (Sk Hwy 7) at Range Road 3063 Please don’t drive in the forest, and respect the signs placed in the park

Many people from Saskatoon, the RM of Corman Park, and tourists have not known that this forest tucked beside the CNR overpass is really an urban regional park to enjoy nature, go for walks, watch birds, engage in health and wellness by bicycle, hiking and cross country skiing. Many classroom activities are planned for George Genereux Park as it truly is an amazing place for place-based learning nature field trips.

This park is an amazing mixed woodlands, a laboratory in ecological succession, and as such has many attributes of a boreal forest ecotone merging with the moist mixed grasslands. Many people local to this area enjoy this urban regional park as they don’t have to drive north of the provincial tree line to immerse in a delightful forest experience with changing microecosystems of evergreens, deciduous trees and meadows.

Back in 1972, when this tree nursery was created, the tree planters could randomly select from a wide variety of hardy drought-resistant saplings. This results in a unique experience. As you walk, one area of the parkspace will be quite distinct and individual from another region. Tt is fascinating to see how the existing aspen bluffs, and prairie animals have adapted to the trees planted in 1972. There are species at risk in the afforestation areas commonly found in a boreal forest ecosystem at a higher elevation, but rare on the prairies.

The trees selected for planting, were planted in a weaving pattern and not north-south and east-west in rows. This weaving pattern gives the park a naturalized appearance. The original intention was that the forests would become urban regional parks for Saskatoon and area to enjoy when the city grew out this way, which is happening now with the P4G and Blairmore Sector plans. The greenspaces started out a tree nurseries to transplant trees into city parks, and now, 50 years later, the trees are too large to transplant.

Here is a summer breeding bird checklist for the park space. Members of the Saskatoon Nature Society have been ringing (banding) birds at George Genereux Park for a number of years.

And a trail map for the park to help and assist park users enjoying George Genereux Park.

Coincidentally when the City Parks department got involved with the Green Survival Program, to build on their green belt, another afforestation area was also preserved in perpetuity. The neighbouring Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area is on the other side of Sk Highway 7. On the following map George Genereux is the purple square to the west, and the 326 acre Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area is between Cedar Villa Estates and the CN Chappell Yards.

Please enjoy these urban regional parks located on the west side of Saskatoon! Richard St. Barbe Baker has the Chappell Marsh wetlands located within it, and to the south of Cedar Villa Road (Tsp Rd 362A) is the other side of the wetlands at Chappell Marsh Conservation Area owned by Ducks Unlimited in the RM of Corman Park. Both the afforestation areas are in the peri-urban region of the City of Saskatoon, and the greenspaces are enjoyed by health and wellness enthusiasts, dog walkers, and nature lovers. You are invited and welcomed to come out and explore these Undiscovered Forests of Saskatoon! The afforestation areas are amazing in all seasons. What will you discover?
