The Legacy of Saskatoon's Secret Forest - Richard St. Barbe Baker Conservationist and Humanitarian Logo

We are letting you know about a film and film launch program that includes global conservationists who knew
Richard St. Barbe Baker (1889-1982) aka Baba Wya Miti Loving Father of Trees, who are part of a virtual film on Saturday, November 6, 1:00 pm SK time (CT)

The film, The Legacy of Saskatoon’s Hidden Forest, highlights the 326-acre man-made forest on the prairies that was named after Richard St. Barbe Baker. It was created from interviews with Paul Hanley, David van Vliet, Hugh Locke and Robert White. After the film was produced by Aspen Films, 7 more people from around the world who were inspired by St Barbe were interviewed and excerpts of these will be shown (see flyer link). The film and tributes will show the influence St Barbe Baker had on others.

Celebrate with us the extraordinary achievements of Richard St Barbe Baker, aka Man of the Trees, 50 years after he was bestowed his honorary Doctorate of Laws at the University of Saskatchewan by chancellor John G. Diefenbaker.

Please join us to learn more about this remarkable champion of forests and trees, who inspired people around the world. Celebrate the naming of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area in Saskatoon. In Paul Hanley’s biography Man of the Trees a case is made that St. Barbe Baker was the First Global Conservationist.

Please share with others.

Only the good, Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc.
