Who are you? I'd like an update on the tree nursery situation at Don Matheson's place. While I was still on the Board, Don attended an AGM and requested the watershed group bring the area back to what it once was. As well I'd like some info on the success of the work done at Augustine Cove to protect the bank from the tides. Kayla and I went to help on one occasion . . . . Thanks.

We've wrapped up another fantastic summer last week! Thank you so much to all our members, landowners, and supporters that are dedicated to environmental stewardship in our watershed - we appreciate you!

Our work includes: planting native trees and shrubs to enhance and improve riparian zones and upland habitat, removing blockages and debris that disrupt connectivity in our rivers and streams making it difficult for fish to reach valuable habitat upstream, completing water quality monitoring, completing riparian health assessments that will guide future work, completing projects focused on stream rehabilitation, planning and participating in community events and educational events, and more.

Here are some photo highlights from August...

The 2018 Celebrate Our River Event and River Duck Race was a great success! We had well over 250 ducks entered in the race this year - a huge thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday to support WRIG and for those who purchased duck tickets in advance also. The sun was shining and all the hot dogs and corn were gobbled up! This year we tested out a much shorter race route which I think turned out to be fun and exciting! Hailey and Taylor did an incredible job sending the ducks down river, scooping them up at the finish line, and collecting them all afterwards. This year’s winners are…

In 1st place: Cymbria Lions Club!

In 2nd place: Arnold MacLean!

In 3rd place: Xandra van der Geer!

Thank you to our many volunteers who made the day run smoothly and to our generous sponsors... we appreciate you! Thank you for supporting your local watershed group and for helping make the work we do possible!
