Wade Baker is a sculptor, graphic designer and red cedar carver. He has been carving and creating art since he was a teenager. As a descendant of ancient Coast Salish, Kwakwaka'wakw, Tlingit and Haida nobility, Wade has inherited a rich artistic legacy. In these traditions, art is not a separate activity but is interwoven in life, language, custom and culture. Art is a means of spiritual expression in which a design or piece of art can encompass an entire story.
Wade creates custom designs, logos, awards, carvings, and art for his clients.

Below is a diagram of Old Fields predator/prey relationships and their reliance on their “novel ecosystem.” Grass heights dictate survival at Terra Nova Rural Park in Richmond, BC. Painstakingly outlined in the the Terra Nova Habitat Enhancement Strategy there is a strong emphasis on promoting landscape maintenance strategies that optimize predator/prey relations.If grass is higher than 50cm predators cannot see their prey, if grass is near 30cm it is optimum for predation and foraging.10cm grass heights deter animal habitation due to little protective cover. The diagram below shows how this effects predation and specifically how the Great Horned Owl and the humble Vagrant Shrew moves through the site at these varying conditions and scales.
