Our earth needs eco-champions. The inspirational story of Richard St. Barbe Baker, aka the “Man of the Trees,” can help children and youth aspire to be these champions. The new heritage documentary “The Legacy of Saskatoon’s Secret Forest” tells the story of his remarkable life and achievements. From roots in Saskatoon he went on to inspire tree planting and forest protection around the world.  The International Tree Foundation, which he founded in 1922, is still active in 14 countries. Countless people motivated by him are environmental champions today. A companion curriculum describes his holistic world view, and his daring life of action on behalf of the earth.   This is what epic traditions are made of!
