Welcome to the BBEMA BUZZ a Bi-annual newsletter about BBEMA’s activities within the Bedeque Bay and its sub-watersheds. It has been another busy year in the watershed with BBEMA staff and community members being engaged in many stewardship and planting activities. Over 800 volunteers and community members participated in 25 projects and events taking place across the Wilmot, Dunk and Bradshaw Rivers. Approximately 4500 trees and shrubs were planted and 25,000 square meters of watershed were restored.
We kickoff this newsletter with a recap of our busy year so far in 2016, as well as an introduction to our newest research and restoration projects recently launched.
Several government and private sector partnerships were realized to implement
unique partnership projects in the watershed. These partners ranged from: the Dept. of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, PE Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, North America Partnership for Environmental Conservation, City of Summerside, Environment Canada, TD Bank, RBC Royal Bank and the Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation.
