Welcome to our Watershed!
The Kennebecasis Watershed Restoration Committee or "KWRC" is a non-profit organization whose mission is to restore the Kennebecasis River Watershed back to a sustainable ecosystem.
We strive to undertake strategic habitat restoration, monitoring efforts, and educational initiatives to promote public awareness and participation in the restoration of the Kennebecasis River Watershed.
The Kennebecasis Watershed Restoration Committee wants to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik Wahsipekuk (Maliseet), Wabanaki and Mi’kma’ki Peoples.
Our Restoration Efforts
The KWRC has been planning, securing funding for, and implementing restoration activities since 1994. Our organization has now completed restoration projects at over 56 sites in the Kennebecasis Watershed. To spotlight our riparian restoration efforts, we have recently updated our Riparian Restoration Portfolio! To read more about each site, check out our portfolio here.
Our 2021 Vision Statement
The team at the KWRC wanted to share our vision statement for 2021: protect and connect! This is here to remind you and us.
Each year the KWRC works as a team to come up with a vision statement. Our vision statement drives the work that we do and reminds us of areas of our work that we could stand to improve upon. The vision statement helps us stay focused and motivated on the tasks at hand, and inspires us to continue to restore our beautiful watershed.
As our team was brainstorming for this year's vision statement, the words 'protect' and 'connect' continually came up. As an environmental organization, we know the importance of protecting our natural areas and ensuring healthy ecosystems for years to come. We also know that after the unpredictable year that we've all had in 2020, that community connection is needed now more than ever.
That is why this year we will focus on protecting and connecting our rivers, our ecosystems, and our communities, to create a healthy watershed for all.
