Help requested please SAT Sept 24 9:30 – 1:30 pm Many Hands Make Light Work for Forest Conservation Clean UP
While it is still autumn, come help pick up lumber, small lumber pieces, wood, wood pallets. A park user who enjoys the park space of the afforestation areas has spotted some lumber, wood, wood pallets and small lumber pieces for removal – a start has been made, but would go ever so much faster with more hands and more people please and thank you! If a fence is going up, it would be so nice not to have a fence around a forest with garbage, it would be wonderful to have a forest green space without any garbage, and without any lumber in the forest. The City of Saskatoon will supply a Loraas Bin. SAT Sept 24 9:30 am – 1:30 pm
If you have a truck ahead of time, that would be handy to bring the one pile of wood out of George Genereux forest, before the fencing is installed! We could use the Richard St. Barbe Baker Loraas bin to help clean up both afforestation areas that way.
What a treat that would be. email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 306.380.5368 for further information. See directions attached from a Google Satellite Map! Thank you for your consideration in coming to help out at the clean up for sure.
