Let us remember “Men of the Trees” founder Richard St. Barbe Baker, OBE, Hon. LL. D. F.I.A.L., who visited Seattle in 1915 and 1916, and again in 1982, three months before his death. He met with visitors from bed while severely ill to remind everyone of actions needed to protect the world’s climate. Seattle had been on his mind for decades; now, a hundred years later, we are reminded that we too need to be on the leading edge of reducing climate change.
We are excited to share that The Unity Museum is planning a special centenary luncheon in June with Paul Hanley as keynote speaker, St. Barbe Baker’s biographer. The foreword and introduction to his new biography were written by no less than Prince Charles and Jane Goodall.
