Talk by Paul Hanley, Author of Man of the Trees: Richard St. Barbe Baker, the First Global Conservationist
Wednesday, October 12, 2022
On October 9, Paul Hanley visited from Molokai to talk about Sir Dr. Richard St. Barbe Baker. His presentation was a small part of the research performed, as part of his book about this extraordinary man. He traveled the earth educating on planting trees, in times and places that conservation work was unheard of. His work started in Africa's deserts surveying 35,000 miles in two years, creating the first RV from ship parts and a truck, riding horseback across Mongolia and Britain, visiting Seattle on multiple occasions, and while he retired in Saskatoon, his work did not end until the last day of his life, when a storm broke and he was wheelchaired to a tree planting ceremony, and everyone held hands in a circle around it. The forward to Paul Hanley's book is by no less than Jane Goodall and King Charles III, and our Unity Museum enjoyed his visit and inspirational talk. For full video click Read more
