A NEW COLLEGE football champion is about to be crowned today as TCU and Georgia battle it out in the season’s final game at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

Georgia — who entered the College Football Playoff as the favorite — barely hung on to their undefeated season record after making it to the championship game with a 42-41 comeback win against Ohio State in the semifinal. In the other semifinal, No. 3-ranked TCU went toe-to-toe with No. 2-ranked Michigan, securing a shocking 51-45 upset victory and a ticket to the championship.

If you’re looking to watch the College Football Championship game today, read on. Below is a full guide on how to stream Georgia vs. TCU — including an easy way to watch the game online for free — plus detail on the game’s start time and betting odds.

When is the College Football Championship? Date, Start Time
The 2023 College Football Championship is going down today, Jan. 9 at 7:30 p.m. ET / 4:30 p.m. PT.

Georgia vs. TCU Odds, Prediction
With a No. 1 ranking, an undefeated season, and an 80-15 head coach on the sidelines, Georgia is unsurprisingly the favorite to win the championship today with a 12.5-point advantage.

Despite their clear advantage, an upset win from TCU is still very much possible. If we’ve learned anything bout the Horned Frogs over the last several games, it’s that they can — and do — overcome odds. They were given 200-1 playoff odds in the preseason, and their most recent game against Michigan made TCU the first Big 12 team to win a playoff game. Should they prevail today, it’ll be the Horned Frogs’ first championship since 1938.

College Football Playoff Expansion
This year’s CFP comes amidst big news for the tournament. It was announced in December that, starting in the 2024 season, the CFP will be expanding from four to 12 teams. This is great news for playoff fans, as we’ll not only get more games but more opportunities for underdog schools to take home the CFP Championship trophy. We still have two more four-team College Football Playoff tournaments (including this year’s), but the coming change is worth looking forward to.

Green Survival In Action! George Genereux Urban Regional Park Sun, May 7, 2023 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM CST YouTube Video Trailer (Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc.)

Category: Meetings, Conferences and Workshops
Dates: May 7, 2023 - May 7, 2023

We will be exploring the rich history of George Genereux Urban Regional Park and its connection to the City of Saskatoon's afforestation initiative and the North American "Green Survival Program", with a slogan, "It Begins With You". In 1972-1973, the City of Saskatoon embarked on a mission to plant thousands of trees in an effort to green the city and improve the environment for its residents. This initiative was part of the larger North American "Green Survival Program - It Begins With You", which aimed to raise awareness about the importance of afforestation and encourage individuals to get involved in planting and caring for trees. As part of this initiative, the George Genereux Urban Regional Park was established and thousands of trees were planted here to create a beautiful and diverse urban forest. Today, we will be exploring some of the surviving specimens from this planting effort and learning about the important role they play in our city's ecosystem. As we walk through the park, you will see a diverse range of tree species, each with its own unique characteristics and benefits. You will also learn about the different types of habitats that exist here, from dense forests to open grassland meadows, and how these habitats support a variety of wildlife.

So join me as we take a step back in time and discover the history and significance of the City of Saskatoon's afforestation initiative and the Green Survival Program, and the impact that these initiatives have had on the George Genereux Urban Regional Park.

Category: Meetings, Conferences and Workshops
Dates: May 6, 2023 - May 6, 2023

On this nature walk tour, where we will be delving into the rich history of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area and its connection to the Green Survival Program, a City of Saskatoon parks initiative from the 1970s. In 1972-1973, the city of Saskatoon embarked on a mission to plant thousands of trees in an effort to green the city and improve the environment for its residents. This initiative, known as the Green Survival Program, was a response to the growing concern about the impact of urbanization on the natural environment. As part of the program, over 200,000 trees were planted in various areas throughout the city, including here in the two afforestation areas. Today, we will be exploring some of the surviving specimens from this planting effort and learning about the important role they play in our city's ecosystem. As we walk through the afforestation area, you will see a diverse range of tree species, each with its own unique characteristics and benefits. You will also learn about the different types of habitats that exist here, from dense forests to open grassland meadows, and how these habitats support a variety of wildlife. So join me as we take a step back in time and discover the history and significance of the Green Survival Program and the trees that it helped bring to life in the afforestation area.

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.

Notable Global ecologists and conservationists from Switzerland, Scotland, Hawaii, New York, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, what do these people from around the world have to say about their love of the earth and of trees, and how they first heard of Richard St. Barbe Baker? These are truly heart warming stories that they want to share. Their lives changed to follow the words they heard from Richard St. Barbe Baker. How could this one man encourage large groups of people around the world to plant trees? Then how could this man inspire others to create more and more large groups of people to also take care of the earth? What kind of magic did Richard St. Barbe Baker possess that people would stop whatever they were doing to connect with nature and take care of the world? These people, environmental conservationists all, are now, and they have their own story tell about how they began to look after the world from a seed planted by Richard St. Barbe Baker.

Why would forests, streets and avenues around the world be named after Richard St. Barbe Baker? Statues, monuments and plaques were built to remember the story of Richard St. Barbe Baker.

There is a forest in Saskatoon. It is a secret forest which no one had ever heard about. This forest is named after Richard St. Barbe Baker because he planted trees, and here in this park hundreds upon thousands of trees were planted. It was a perfect match. Forest visitors hearing the story of Richard St. Barbe Baker fall in love with the Saskatoon forest and want to protect it. They want to make the forest as special and magnificent as this great man was special and magnificent.

Richard St. Barbe Baker fell in love with trees as a child. He had a bonding experience which filled him with love. He shared this feeling with everyone so that they could feel a oneness and a love for trees like he did. His stories about tree planting were published in books, and on radio shows. Other people heard his stories and decided then and there, that they, too would find this love for trees. Richard St. Barbe Baker went on to create a large global group dedicated to the love of trees, and tree planting. So many people were happy to help him, they loved to be friends with Richard St. Barbe Baker and his ideas. These people who joined with Richard to plant trees and protect trees had a special name – Watu Wa Miti -because the first place Richard St. Barbe Baker started was in Africa. Watu Wa Miti are Forest Scouts or Forest Guardians because of the promise they took to help out. Richard St. Barbe Baker saved their lives.

These trees planted created forests habitats and homes for wildlife. Another global wildlife society Canadian Wildlife Federation- saw the importance of Richard St. Barbe Baker’s work, and gave him an award. The Queen of England and the University of Saskatchewan also gave Richard St. Barbe Baker awards for Richard’s worldwide travels to save the planet to protect and plant trees. So it was that Richard St. Barbe Baker received the order of the British Empire, and 50 years ago was bestowed the honourary Doctorate of Laws by John G. Diefenbaker. At this time Diefenbaker was chancellor of the university and went on to become Prime Minister of Canada.

Richard St. Barbe Baker OBE, Hon. LL.D. F.I.A.L., For.Dip.Cantab., ACF (9 October 1889 – 9 June 1982) was an English biologist and botanist, environmental activist and author, who contributed greatly to worldwide reforestation efforts. As a leader, he founded an organisation, Men of the Trees, still active today as the International Tree Foundation, whose many chapters carry out reforestation internationally.

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.

Immersing in the exploratory steps of semiosis, ecological ethics and cosmic diplomacy. Discovering the heart and soul of the forest. Richard St. Barbe Baker had a mission to develop a" tree sense" in every citizen, and to encourage all to plant, protect and love their native trees.

"I approach God's Creation, this beautiful Earth. The ancients believed that the Earth was a sentient being and felt the behaviour of mankind upon it." said Richard St. Barbe Baker, " As we have no proof to the contrary, it might be as well for responsible people to accept this point of view and behave accordingly.

PaRx has officially arrived in Saskatchewan! (Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc.)

Category: Meetings, Conferences and Workshops
Dates: September 25, 2021 - September 25, 2021

Zoom Virtual Online Event PaRx, Canada's first national nature prescription program, has officially arrived in Saskatchewan!

PaRx is an initiative of the BC Parks Foundation, driven by health-care professionals who want to improve their patients’ health by connecting them to nature. Featuring practical resources like quick tips and patient handouts, its goal is to make prescribing time in nature simple, fun and effective. Research suggests that spending time in green space boosts immune function and life expectancy, and lowers the risk of developing a host of medical conditions from heart disease to diabetes, obesity, depression and anxiety. Not only that, but people who are more connected to nature are more likely to protect it. With guest speakers Dr. Melissa Lem, Director of PaRx, as well as University of Saskatchewan medical students Brooklyn Rawlyk and Sehjal Bhargava

The non-profit charity Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc. was created to preserve and restore the 326-acre Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area (RSBBAA) 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.”

The word recreation can be understood re-creation, reflecting the fact that being in nature is restorative for human beings. Richard St. Barbe Baker wandered into the forest near his home at age five and experienced the overwhelming beauty of nature touch his soul.

“Soon I was completely isolated in the luxuriant, tangled growth of ferns which were well above my head. In my infant mind I seemed to have entered a fairyland of my dreams. I wandered on as in a dream, all sense of time and space lost … I became intoxicated with the beauty all around me, immersed in the joyousness and exultation of feeling part of it all. I had entered the temple of the wood. I sank to the ground in a state of ecstasy; everything was intensely vivid – the call of a distant cuckoo seemed just for me … The overpowering beauty of it all entered my very being. At that moment my heart brimmed over with a sense of unspeakable thankfulness which has followed me through the years since that woodland re-birth.”

St Barbe had a life-long feeling of oneness with nature after this and this spiritual connection inspired his great achievements to protect and restore forests. He taught that trees and woodlands are intimately linked with biological, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being. In this light, he often quoted the poet Stanton Coblentz who wrote about the redwood forests “ I think but could the weary world but know communion with these spirits breathing peace, strangely a veil would lift, a light would glow, and the dark tumult of our lives would cease.”

Reconciliation through Healing Forests (Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc.)

Category: Meetings, Conferences and Workshops
Dates: September 22, 2021 - September 22, 2021

National Healing Forests Online Zoom Webinar. Imagine woodlands setting(s) for health, wellness, understanding, and respect across cultures.

A forest can help people heal and connect them with nature. With this in mind, Peter Croal (retired CIDA Environment Specialist) and Patricia Stirbys (legal and Indigenous Relations specialist) – inspired by the 2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission report and its Calls to Action to strengthen relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples – developed the National Healing Forests initiative. A Healing Forest project brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous neighbours to plan and develop green spaces where survivors and families of the Residential School legacy, as well as all Canadians, can heal, do ceremony, reflect, discuss and meditate. This reconciliation project is community-led and totally grassroots.

This presentation outlines a brief history of the residential school system and explains how communities and institutions can create their own Healing Forest space for reconciliation.

We are grateful for this presentation by Patricia Stirbys (Indigenous relations specialist) and Peter Croal (P. Geol. International Environment and Development Advisor), co-founders of the National Healing Forests initiative.

This virtual connection provides a time to learn more about the National Healing Forests in this era of Truth and Reconciliation.

how does this free tool give value to farmers and the potential for cash in pocket? (Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc.)

Category: Meetings, Conferences and Workshops
Dates: September 21, 2021 - September 21, 2021

The Shelterbelt Decision Support System [SB-DSS] Virtual Online Zoom Webinar “in its latest climate change action plan, the Saskatchewan government is proposing to pay farmers for storing carbon, not just charging agricultural producers for emitting carbon into the atmosphere, “ reports U of S News. Dr. Colin Laroque from the University of Saskatchewan will present information about this free app - a tool for Saskatchewan farmers - to place a cash value on sustainable shelterbelts. The Free app is the Shelterbelt Decision Support System [SB - DSS] calculates the carbon offset value of shelterbelts, and isn't that a fantastic way for farmers to know what their shelterbelt is worth under the $50 per tonne CO2E tax expected to roll out in 2022. This app is invaluable, as it also helps to suggest the best types of trees depending on the location in the province along with planting guidelines. Not only will farmers reap the environmental benefits, they can see the carbon offset value for the carbon pricing system.

" if you devote 22% of a quarter section, that's 160 acres, to trees, you can double the crops.' It's a question of planting trees strategically. The trees reduce the speed of the wind, modify the climate, they modify the difference in temperature from day and night, and above all the trees make it possible for the earthworms to come into the land, and the earthworm casts its own weight every 24 hours. And a well-populated acre of worms casts 30 tonnes of worm castings per acre per year. That's equal to 30 tonnes of farmyard manure on that land." Richard St. Barbe Baker who also explains , that “We’re stabilizing the sand with a series of spiral shelters – rows of trees planted in semicircles to catch the winds and create vortices of air. The same thing would be valuable on the Canadian prairies where straight shelter belts cause snow to accumulate.”

“We forget that we owe our existence to the presence of Trees. As far as forest cover goes, we have never been in such a vulnerable position as we are today. The only answer is to plant more Trees – to Plant Trees for Our Lives," says Richard St. Barbe Baker

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.

This is one session in a week long series of events celebrating National Forest Week with a theme – “Our Forests – Continually Giving”

Saskatoon’s Wildlife—the real night life in Saskatoon! (Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc.)

Category: Meetings, Conferences and Workshops
Dates: September 18, 2021 - September 18, 2021

Dr .Ryan Brook has access to Saskatoon’s real night life. His Wildlife Ecology and Community Engagement (WECE) lab at the University of Saskatchewan uses 30 trail cameras strapped to trees to photograph the different animals that are coming and going in the city and on its fringes. Approximately 85% of the photographs in the first four months were of animals active at night. Our river corridor is a living habitat that's home to a lot species including coyotes, skunks, foxes, moose, deer, rabbits, porcupines, beavers, and muskrats, but there have been cougar and bear sightings.

The U of S project is part of the Urban Wildlife Information Network (UWIN), which has dozens of cities compiling and sharing similar data with each other. Saskatoon is one of the first Canadian cities involved in this alliance of urban wildlife scientists committed to doing the research necessary to enhance the ability for people and wildlife to coexist in cities. The WECE lab data will be invaluable to better understanding animal patterns in Saskatoon and could be used to shape wildlife policy and land use planning. The Saskatoon metropolitan area is anticipated to grow to ½ million people and there are important Green Network Study Areas in the works which are vital for ecological connections along the river and the associated northeast swale, small swale, Hudson Bay Swale and west swale which are all part of the South Saskatchewan watershed.

As a member of the Indigenous Land Management Institute in the College of Agriculture and Bioresources, Brook combines traditional knowledge, wildlife ecology, ecosystem monitoring science and a wealth of data about wildlife movement and activities in Saskatoon. Join us on Saturday Sept. 18 at 7:00 pm as we discover what Brook’s lab has discovered and how we can better understand urban wildlife and the ecology around us. It is a great opportunity to increase our capacity to connect with and co-exist with our urban wildlife.

I interviewed my dad on video in his final weeks. When I asked about his work and finding meaning through helping others, he responded, “I don’t think you can be focused on, ‘Oh gee, I want to make a difference.’ It has to be spontaneous. If it’s not…there’s some kind of egotistical thing going on. That’s a red flag. You hope you impact people on the deepest level you are capable of at the time. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you don’t. You’re trying.
