The Future of the Memramcook River
Sentinelles Petitcodiac Riverkeeper (SPR) in partnership with the Petitcodiac Watershed Alliance (PWA) and Terrestrial Ecologist Lyle Vicaire are hosting an event to discuss restoration opportunities along the Memramcook River.
This hybrid event will take place at the Memramcook Municipal Building or on ZOOM from 6pm-8pm on Tuesday, January 10th in English, and again on January 11th in French.

Participants will be introduced to opportunities for restoration along the Memramcook River. SPR will provide an update and next steps for the Memramcook Causeway. Attendees will also learn from guest speakers about the general function and benefits of salt marshes, successful salt marsh restoration projects such as one completed in Taylor Village, and understand the importance of naturalized restoration options for their region.
Event attendees will have the opportunity to talk to some of their local watershed groups, ask questions, and take home some material to learn more about the importance of salt marshes. There will also be some free native seeds given to people who attend the event!
Come join us on January 10th or January 11th to learn more about the future of the Memramcook river!
