Jeff Hehn made a facebook posting:  “As mentioned at the meeting last night [Wed March 29, 2017]- here is the  link to the photo album of accumulating issues since the last cleanup: . Anyone should be able to add to the album if you see an issue that needs addressing.”

“Also I,  [Jeff Hehn] have been logging the location to a google map as posted on the Users of Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area facebook page Additionally the phenomenal RSBBAA – Vehicle restrictions are pictured online!”

This is a fantastic to update the news about the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area, thank you to Jeff Hehn, ambassador of the Fatlanders Fatbike  Brigade FFBB. However, that being said, it is arrggghh to see the devastation.

“In the wealth of the woods since the world began The trees have offered their gifts to man.” – Henry van Dyke

The greatest gift of all is life. For millions of years the trees were paving the way for life on this planet, absorbing impurities, clearing up the foetid atmosphere and the swamp breath, absorbing carbon dioxide and giving off the life giving oxygen that
we breathe.” ~Richard St. Barbe Baker

Clean UP October 29 10 a.m.-12

Let us heal the naked scars in the earth and erstore her green mantle. Let us set our Earth family in order.~Richard St. Barbe Baker

Are you available for a quick clean up on Saturday Oct. 29, 2016 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon? The area to be done is the smaller forest between the South West off leash recreation area and the Civic Operations Center (bus barns) on Cedar Villa Road ~ (so the forest east of the dog park)

The fantastic thing is that there are some Vehicle Restriction Barriers erected now to mitigate access by those who may dump trash into the urban forest!

But just as a farmer who fences off a property to keep coyotes or skunks out, when the fence is finished up, it is defeating the purpose if the fence contains the coyote or skunk within it. So at the afforestation area, a little clean up is needed for what was missed on July 9, and if you are around to help, it would be enormously appreciated!

And then a wonderful example can be set of a spectacular urban forest to enjoy with vehicle barriers up for a safe and scenic walk, bicycle ride, jog or stroll in the woods.

Thank you so kindly for any help on Saturday October 29, 2016 you are able to lend to the effort
