Sackville Rivers


We acknowledge that we are in Mi'kma'ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi'kmaq People.

The Sackville River and its watershed encompass a large area of outstanding natural beauty within the Halifax Regional Municipality and the county of East Hants.

Much of the watershed, the river and its tributaries have suffered from neglect and past development practices.

​The Sackville Rivers Association (SRA) is a non-profit organization founded in 1988. We are dedicated to the preservation, restoration and management of the Sackville River watershed.

A well managed watershed provides citizens with a healthy, sustainable community and innumerable recreational opportunities such as: walking, boating, cycling, angling, birding and many others.
