The Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc. present the Wildwoods of Saskatoon virtual film on Zoom and YouTube Premiere. Commemorate Oct 24 with us as we celebrate UN World Development Information Day & International Day Against Climate Change

This heritage documentary will feature notable guest speakers who speak to the rich history and heritage of the two afforestation areas the 132 ha (326 acre) Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area and the 60 ha (148 acre) George Genereux Urban Regional Park planted to trees in 1972 under the Green Survival Program - a 50th anniversary jubilee celebration of our heritage.

Hearing from Dr. Bill Waiser B.A., M.A., Ph.D. O.C. SOM, Distinguished history Professor Emeritus and Dr. Ernie Walker, B.A., M.A., Ph.D. O.C. SOM, Archaeology & Anthropology professor emeritus and recognizing Detective Sargeant Bruce Gordon, and the #BeLikeBruce campaign, and three other namesakes of the afforestation areas, BT chappell city builder, Richard St. Barbe Baker Global Conservationist, and George Genereux Olympic gold medalist.

A Tangible Legacy. History, Geology, Ecology, Ecosystem services, Sense of place, Opportunities. Protecting memories and visualizing dreams. Exploration of the symbiotic relationship of the diverse urban community being nurtured in nature at the Wildwoods of Saskatoon.

This is the 50th anniversary of both afforestation areas planted to trees in 1972! These forests, wetlands and greenspaces are semi-wilderness wildlife habitats in Saskatoon providing two amazing areas to balance environmental sustainability and conservation with social, physical, and mental benefits for health and wellness in a natural greenspace setting.

Opening up to a deeply resonant perspective on greenspace heritage and the grandeur of forests, director James Hay weaves the conversation from breathtaking aerial forest scenes and archival footage in a call to consciousness.
