Interested in the health and restoration of the Petitcodiac River?
Come meet our Riverkeeper, give us feedback and find out how to get involved.
Much remains to be done for the Petitcodiac River to return to its natural state. The water quality does not meet the safety threshold necessary to practice recreational activities and fish spawning grounds are far from being completely restored. The causeway must be replaced with a partial bridge. Petitcodiac Riverkeeper represents the community’s interest in continued action and lobbying to ensure the complete restoration of the Petitcodiac River.
Members of the general public as well as current Petitcodiac Riverkeeper members are invited to learn more about priorities for the river’s restoration efforts and meet the new Riverkeeper and Executive Director of the organization, Daniel Bard.
Please join us for our Meet & Greet and Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, April 6, 2016, in the Port Royal Salon of the Château Moncton (100 Main Street, Moncton, NB).

Petitcodiac Riverkeeper is a registered non-profit organization based in Moncton, New Brunswick. Our mission is to lead the restoration, protection and promotion of the ecological integrity of the Petitcodiac and Memramcook watersheds and the Shepody Bay estuary, situated in southeastern New Brunswick and the Bay of Fundy. Our mission is accomplished through public education, monitoring water quality, ensuring that environmental laws are respected and initiating rehabilitation projects.
Some of our accomplishments over the past 10 years include:
- Petitcodiac River Restoration – We have raised public awareness and convinced government to act on the opening of the Petitcodiac River causeway’s gates and restoration of fish passage in the river.
- Citizen and Youth Education: We have raised awareness about clean water and watershed issues among citizens and youth.
- Addressing Pollution Sources – We have held polluters accountable, filed complaints and followed through on possible infractions to environmental legislation.
