This year the event will be held on Sunday October 22 at the Kinsmen Community Centre. See poster below for details.
This is a year like no other in the 35 year history of the SRA. Bedford and Sackville were severely affected by flooding this summer. People and businesses suffered damage, lost property and valuable time as they cleaned up in the days and weeks following the flood.
The Sackville River, the Little Sackville River, the Bedford Sackville Connector Greenway, and the Sackville Greenway also suffered considerable damage due to the flooding. In some instances, well established fish breeding areas were lost as river beds were drastically altered. Our fish ladder suffered significant damage and had to be shut down. We were thus unable to get a reliable count of migrating Atlantic salmon this year.
We need your support more than ever this year to enable us to mitigate the damage to the river, fish habitat, and trails.
