The Meduxnekeag River Association (MRA) was formed in Woodstock, New Brunswick in 1995 as a Canadian community-based non-profit environmental watershed organization that has protected over 700 acres of ecoregionally significant habitats.
• to promote, encourage and assist in the protection, restoration and responsible use of the Meduxnekeag River Watershed;
• to promote and encourage the protection, conservation and enhancement of wild Brook trout, Brown trout and Atlantic salmon;
• to co-operate with landowners to conserve the natural riparian zone along the Meduxnekeag and its wildlife and plant species;
• to preserve remnant Appalachian Hardwood forests and their inherent biodiversity and natural beauty;
• to promote public education and awareness of the value of preserving the natural qualities and biodiversity of the unique Meduxnekeag River watershed; and,
• to co-operate with and support any agency that shares a common purpose with the Association.
Since 1998, we have purchased and protected as the Meduxnekeag Valley Nature Preserve about 300 hectares of ecologically-rich riparian forest including key habitat of more than a dozen species of provincially-rare plants.
Our two principal education programs are guided curriculum-linked Preserve visits for K-12 classes, and our annual Meduxnekeag Environmental Showcase competition for elementary students.
Meduxnekeag River Association Inc is a registered charity with Revenue Canada, offering tax receipts for donations.
In 2004, we were honoured with a New Brunswick Environmental Leadership Award.
In 2006, we received a Certificate of Recognition from the town of Woodstock.
In 2011, we were the recipient of the Paul McGaw Memorial Conservation Award from the North American Native Plants Society.
In 2012 , Earth Day Canada chose us to receive their national Home Town Heroes Award.
