The Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc.

As you enter the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area or George Genereux Urban Regional Park is it easy to see that nature is everywhere. Through iNaturalist BioBlitzes taking place at different times of the year, it is great to engage in community science and citizen science endeavours to document a flora and fauna inventory. This inventory supports environmental protection, environmental health and environmental sustainability. The Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc. is a non profit environmental charity with nature lovers on the board of directors. The afforestation areas are a good choice for opeting outside in The Great Outdoors to explore our urban forest in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The Friends are seeking a volunteer bookeeper to join the Board of Directors.

"The simple act of planting a tree, which is in itself a practical deed, is also the symbol of a far reaching ideal, which is creative in the realm of the Spirit, and in turn reacts upon society, encouraging all to work for the future well being of humanity rather than for immdiate gain." Richard St. Barbe Baker
