Stewardship, Education and Monitoring

A variety of assessment work that has been carried out on the Kouchibouguacis and Kouchibouguac rivers in recent years has led to a better understanding of their ecological health status. An assessment of the state of riparian zones has therefore shown that a growing fragmentation of vegetation in buffer zones must be addressed as a priority for maintaining the health of our rivers. To address this problem, our organization has undertaken a variety of outreach activities since the summer of 2002. Once again this year, thanks to the financing received from the New-Brunswick Environmental Trust Fund and assistance of various partners, The Friends of the Kouchibouguacis have undertaken some initiatives in this direction.
