🌱 Empower Our Eco-Heritage: Giving Tuesday 2023 🌳

Dear Friends and Supporters,

This Giving Tuesday, let's join hands to nurture the green heart of Saskatoon! We invite you to be a beacon of change by supporting the Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas, a non-profit environmental charity dedicated to the preservation and education of our precious natural spaces.

About Us: Our mission is rooted in the stewardship of two remarkable areas - the 132 ha Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area and the 60 ha George Genereux Urban Regional Park. These green gems are not just parks; they are living classrooms, breathing ecosystems, and vibrant spaces for our community to connect with nature.

Your Impact: This Giving Tuesday, your support will directly contribute to the transformation of our community. The funds raised will fuel our environmental eco-heritage education initiatives, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation for the natural world.

Upcoming Events:

  1. Nutrien WinterShines Dog Sledding Extravaganza (February 2024): Immerse yourself in the magic of winter as we organize dog sledding events during Nutrien WinterShines. It's not just about the thrill; it's about experiencing the beauty of our Afforestation Areas in a unique way.

  2. Citizen Science Biodiversity Nature Inventory (April 26-29, 2024): Be a part of something extraordinary! Join us in an exhilarating citizen science initiative using the iNaturalist app. Together, we'll create a comprehensive biodiversity inventory, documenting the richness of life in our green spaces.

Ways to Give:

  1. Donate Financially: Your monetary contribution will directly support our educational programs, event organization, and the overall maintenance of these vital areas. Every dollar counts!

  2. Volunteer Your Time: Join our community of passionate individuals dedicated to preserving our natural heritage. Volunteer for events, workshops, or lend a hand in the ongoing conservation efforts.

  3. Spread the Word: Share our mission with your friends, family, and social networks. The more people who know about our cause, the greater impact we can make.

Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2023: On this global day of generosity, let's come together to make a difference. Your contribution will empower us to continue creating positive environmental change, leaving a lasting legacy for future generations.

Every Act of Generosity Counts: Whether you can give financially, volunteer your time, or simply spread the word, your contribution matters. Every act of generosity, no matter how big or small, has the power to transform our community.

Join us in cultivating a greener, more sustainable future for Saskatoon. Together, we can make a lasting impact on our environment and inspire a sense of eco-responsibility in every citizen.
