Richard St Barbe Baker

Child of the Trees

Richard St. Barbe Baker dedicated his life to planting trees all over the world to help cool our overheated environment. He was called “the world’s greatest conservationist” and was a pioneer in protecting the world’s forests, creating sustainable forestry methods, and educating people about the importance of planting trees.

He was the founder of the Men of the Trees, the first international Environmental Non-Governmental Organization, known as the International Tree Foundation today. He was a world traveler who taught people everywhere about environmentalism, and who stood up against racial discrimination and worked to empower local populations wherever he went. Richard St. Barbe Baker was a “Change Maker” who left an enduring legacy on the world.

The Change Maker series of books written for junior youth highlights people connected with the Bahá’í Faith who worked to bring about social change.
