Great Projects in the Works
The KWRC has a strong history of putting great projects on the ground. In 2020, despite the current challenges, we hope to put some more great projects together. We are grateful for the support of many partners that help us to continue to create a healthier and more sustainable watershed.
Already in 2020 we secured funding from the New Brunswick Wildlife Trust Fund and the New Brunswick Environmental Trust Fund for three projects each. We have also been given support from the Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation and Environment and Climate Change Canada for a restoration project near Passekeag Creek.
The Government of Canada, through Environment and Climate Change Canada has provided us funds through the Atlantic Ecosystem Initiative to work with 6 other partner groups to improve degraded riparian areas along the Lower Saint John River.
The Province of New Brunswick, through the Environmental Trust Fund will support our watershed monitoring programs, our 2020 restoration efforts, and help us provide educational and volunteer programs.
The New Brunswick Wildlife Trust Fund is a long time supporter of our education and restoration efforts and once again will be supporting our efforts in 2020.
The Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation is also onboard in 2020 to help with our Passkeag Creek Enhancement Initiative and we are excited to be working with them again.
