“Protect our Rivers” Tasting Event
August 24, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
What if supporting river and stream conservation in New Brunswick was as easy as trying a new summer drink?
On August 24th from 4pm-6pm, we will be hosting a tasting event at the Devon Alcool NB Liquor store in support of the “Protect our Rivers” program. This amazing program is a partnership between Alcool NB Liquor and the Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation where 100% of the funds raised are directly contributed to community groups that protect and restore New Brunswick streams and rivers.
Since 2012, close to $500,000 has been raised for this cause. Projects funded through this program have achieved:
– 423 jobs created
– 250,997m2 of degraded stream habitat restored
– 793,109m2 of streams have fish passage restored
– 71, 383 streamside trees planted
– 1,399 volunteers gave 17,821 hours of their time
Come visit us to sample some products and hear how this program has funded NWAI projects related to aquatic connectivity and Atlantic salmon habitat in the Nashwaak watershed!
