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 1972 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 forests.
Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas are proud to bring to you
this series of events for National Forest Week Theme “Our forests –
Continually giving” Saturday September 18, 2021 to Sunday September 26,
2021 Maple Leaf Day September 22, 2021 This is one session in a
