River Restoration

Wigwams RapidsRiver restoration is an integral part of bringing Atlantic salmon and other critical fish species’ populations back to where they should be. Healthy rivers make for a healthy ecosystem, rejuvenate the commercial fisheries, and also provide a wonderful source of eco-tourism and recreation for fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and other activities. These blue trails are the lifeblood of our ecosystems and food web, and are often in the heart of our communities.
