Memramcook River Celebration
Sentinelles Petitcodiac Riverkeeper (SPR) is offering a free guided tour along the Memramcook River this summer. Participants will learn about the river’s unique history and ecological importance while walking directly next to the river. We’ve carefully designed these tours to show visitors every important aspect of the river, from its rich Acadian and Mi’kmaq culture to the phenomenal natural values.
Our guides will lead a walk along the Memramcook River and explain key moments throughout the river’s history from the causeway to current eco-tourism opportunities. We also provide participants with the tools to be actively involved in creating a healthy ecosystem in their neighbourhoods. Participants might receive native plant seeds, indigenous plants or trees to plant in their yard and instructions on how to continue caring for their natural environment.
Our free guided tours are approximately an hour to an hour and a half in length. Participants should be prepared to walk a few kilometres in the sun, so don’t forget to wear some comfortable shoes and be sure to bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, bug spray, a reusable water bottle or anything else you may need!
The activity is free. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to get involved in the removal of the causeway!
Starting point: at the de la Vallée Trail parking lot on St. Thomas Street in Memramcook.
