The Celebrate Our River Festival is an important community event for WRIG. It is an opportunity for us to connect with the community that we are a part of and increase awareness of the work we do as a watershed group in Wheatley River. We saw a lot of new and familiar faces at this year’s event which was excellent. Several families and individuals took the opportunity to become WRIG members which helps to ensure our success as a local environmental group. Funds from duck ticket purchases and the generous donations of those who attended the event make our stream enhancement and tree planting work possible and allow us to make a positive impact in our community. Thank you!
