Nature Moncton February Meeting 

“A Look Back on the Petitcodiac River Causeway” 

Date: February 18, 2020

Time: 7:00 PM

Location:  Mapleton Park Rotary Lodge (across from where Cabela’s used to be)

Speaker:  Gary Griffin

 

As a primer to the Nature Moncton project for an all-day session on the Petitcodiac River scheduled for April 4, Gary Griffin will give Nature Moncton a very interesting presentation of his outstanding work on the Petitcodiac River.
 

Gary plans to present a short history of the river from a Moncton perspective and our pre-causeway understanding of its resource value to the entire Inner Bay of Fundy river systems. From there he will expand on his 19 years of volunteer work at the Petitcodiac River fish trap/gate structure and will touch on fish species before and after closure in 1968. He will also outline problems verified with DFO (Department of Fisheries and Oceans) in the design and operation at the site and work projects spanning 5 years funded by DFO/Employment Enhancement programs. 

Gary will touch on stocking programs, enhancement, and stream enhancement activities before the gates were permanently opened.

 

All are welcome, Nature Moncton member or not.
