25th Anniversary Celebration Open House
Friday, January 17th
11:00am - 2:00pm
KWRC office at 5 Moffett Avenue, Sussex
The staff of the Kennebecasis Watershed Restoration Committee (KWRC) invites the public to join them at their new office space at 5 Moffett Avenue in Sussex (access through front door) on Friday, January 17th from 11:00am – 2:00pm to celebrate the first 25 years of the KWRC’s work restoring the Kennebecasis watershed.
Since 1994, the KWRC has been a leader in environmental restoration of waterways and riparian zones, monitoring water quality and leading educational workshops and events. To date, the KWRC has installed over 400 habitat enhancement structures, erected 56 km of fence to control livestock access to waterways, and planted over 300,000 trees along degraded riparian zones. The KWRC have over 35 sites in their restoration project portfolio, have established a number of successful education outreach activities and engage hundreds of volunteers of all ages from the surrounding local communities that contribute more than 500 volunteer hours of restoration work in the watershed on an annual basis. This work couldn't have been accomplished without the much needed support of funding partners, partnering organizations, local businesses and passionate volunteers.
In appreciation, the staff of the KWRC welcome visitors to drop by to look through their photo archives, get information on their programs and events planned for 2020 and have a piece of cake and a hot drink to celebrate the first 25 years of the KWRC's operations.
We hope to see you there!
