Do you want to take a trip back in time?  Find out about electron beam energy, environmental education, and the Canadian Light Source TREE program

A webinar which is now posted to YouTube open to everyone to learn about this programme, an introduction to the National Canada Wide TREE program where students from Grade 6  to 12 can participate with  the Mistik Askiwin Dendrochronology  Lab (MAD Lab) to work with the Canadian Light Source (CLS) Synchrotron hosted by  Dr Colin Laroque

What does the Canadian Light Source Synchrotron have to do with

Trembling Aspens, and Climate Change? Tree ring patterns reveal

lifestyles, climate history, and so much more! What kind of learning can

be experienced peeking into the heart of trees?

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

weeklong series of webinars.
