Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc. is a non-profit, environmental charity focused on the protection and enhancement of both the. The areas were planted in 1972 under the Green Survival Program, and preserved in perpetuity by Saskatoon City Council in 1979.Tree planting initiatives, environmental stewardship work together to prevent, enhance nature aesthetics, biodiversity habitats and reverse degradation of the environment honouring the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030.

What is the ‘triple environmental emergency we are facing?

1. Loss of biodiversity

2. Climate change

3. Out of control pollution.Our native biodiversity needs wild spaces, food and homes such as trees and forests provide in which to thrive. Forests, tree planting, and forest conservation initiatives are nature-based solutions towards climate action. Pollution, pesticides, herbicides are escalating the extinction events.

Creating safe, organic forest spaces is a large step to halt and slow down the silent sixth mass extinction event of invertebrates, the planet’s bird food on wings. Ornithologists and botanists have noticed that the songbird, and raptor populations have declined by a staggering 48%. The monitored wildlife populations are reduced by a catastrophic 68%. A loss of forests and habitats have caused over 2/3 of our animal populations to totally disappear.

Richard St. Barbe Baker said it this way, “If a person loses one third of his or her skin, the person will die; if a tree loses a third of its bark, the tree will die, and if the world loses a third of its trees, the world will die.We live less that five minutes without air and the trees give us air we breathe. We live less than five days without water, and trees are absolutely essential in the water cycle. We live less than five weeks without food, and without the trees we could not grow food.” (Filson, Bruce K. October 7, 1982, Western People, p. 5)

Tree planting events, forest tours, a heritage film “Wildwoods of Saskatoon”, in person and virtual events will take place during National Forest Week. PaRx has arrived in Saskatchewan attesting to the increased health and wellness benefits people experience when getting out to enjoy our forest greenspaces. Nature enriches the lives of visitors. #NationalForestWeek events are wonderful ways to help create new healthy biodiversity habitats, to discover new trees and unexplored forest places, or perhaps it is a time to return to celebrate a favourite forest you love and are familiar with.During this era of climate change take part in #NationalForestWeek This is the change to tie events together to enhance the multifaceted experience of all visitors.

UN SDG 2

World Population Day is July 11. The world population growth, and earth sustainability is presented in “Eleven” by Paul Hanley. 11 Billion people will share this planet by century’s end.

What is UN SDG 2? United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 2 is Zero Hunger, ie End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture

“I am convinced that the vegan way of life is the only sane way of life, and realising that the basic cause of tension is growing populations and diminishing food sources, for the past ten years I have devoted much of my time to studying the question of food production and the problems of large scale land reclamation by tree planting. “

Richard St. Barbe Baker

What do you think? Are you a vegetarian as Richard St. Barbe Baker was?

“The world’s problem, is not a population explosion, but an animal explosion. We’ve got to decide whether we are going to feed animals or humans. To feed animals is a roundabout way of getting food. It takes 18 times more land to feed people on beef than on vegetables, nuts fruits and grains.”

Richard St. Barbe Baker.

Questions For You! The time is NOW!

City of Saskatoon Public Engagement Survey on the Blaimore Sector Plan Amendment

The 132 hectare (326 acre) Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area (within which is the South West Off Leash Recreation Area and the 60 hectare (148 acre) George Genereux Urban Regional Park might become part of the Blairmore Sector Plan. Find out what that means for these areas! What are the implications?

With your input into the questionnaire the afforestation areas could be added into the Blairmore Sector – hence the name Blairmore Sector Plan Amendment.

The City of Saskatoon has released the Blairmore Sector Plan Amendment with NEW boundaries containing four reports, two videos and a questionnaire survey online.

This City of Saskatoon webpage link will only by online until Friday July 8.

Included in the Natural Areas Screening reporting section is a Natural Area Screening report which gives a report- a real time snapshot in time- on the plants, the animals, as well as insects of woodlands and wetlands. There are photos, and information about what makes the natural area of the forest function, along with suggestions and recommendations from EDI Environmental Dynamics Inc. who have a specialist team that focus on the living things around us and their habitat.

There is information about the background of sector plans looking at neighbourhoods and where 70,000 people can live in new areas of Saskatoon.

Also included is the Official Community Plan Sector Plan, The Blairmore Sector Plan, Southwest Sector Area Map, video presentation about the Blairmore Sector Plan Amendment Project and another video presentation about the Natural Area Screening Study.

In the engage section there is the opportunity for you to write out what you think about Blairmore Sector Plan Amendment. NOTE and REMEMBER This webpage link will only by online until Friday July 8, so the time is now to check it out!

NOTE: There is a short amount of time to engage and complete the online survey to provide concerns and suggestions to the City of Saskatoon Blairmore Sector Plan Amendment! The deadline is Friday July 8. Remember, this is your opportunity to make your voice count to add the afforestation areas to the Blairmore Sector Plan. When you take the time to provide feedback then there may be additional opportunities for another time to provide concerns and suggestions. The City of Saskatoon may consider the opportunity to continue the dialogue with the general public and make another public engagement offer after the summer.

What is your level of interest in two urban regional parks as the City of Saskatoon expands opening its doors to another 70,000 residents? What do you think about the expansion of the Blairmore Sector Plan? What is your level of interest in two semi-wilderness areas homes to species at risk? What do you think about Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area and George Genereux Urban Regional Park? Do you think that these two afforestation areas should be added to the Blaimore Sector? Do you like the recommendations? Do you have more suggestions? What do you see for opportunities and potential?

What is your level of interest as the deadline is Friday July 8?
