SaskParks and tentree have teamed up to try and revitalize the Lac La Ronge Provincial Park after wildfires devastated the area in 2015.

Last night at Saskatchewan Fashion Week, tentree unveiled the design and details of the project. Using pieces of burned trees recovered from La Ronge Provincial Park tentree has created a total of 700 shirts and prints.

For each shirt that is sold, ten trees will be planted in Nemeiben Campground at Lac La Ronge Provincial Park where fire damage was extensive.

“Working with tentree on this project has been a great opportunity for the province,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Mark Docherty said.

“Though the boreal forest naturally regenerates itself, this opportunity to kick start the growth will be beneficial for the visitors of Lac La Ronge Provincial Park, who love the beauty and serenity that the forest environment offers.”

“Our partnership with SaskParks is a momentous step toward revitalizing the forests of our nation,” tentree Creative Director Arthur Kononuk said.

“We couldn’t have found a more meaningful and unique opportunity to plant in our own backyard.”
