A conservation plan for the Burgeo watershed, Newfoundland and Labrador

Recipient: Humber Arm Environmental Association Inc.
Approved Amount: $20,000
Year Approved: 2021

An advisory committee including representatives from the Town of Burgeo, the Burgeo First Nations, and relevant government departments will be established to oversee this project. Past conservation efforts will be researched. Consultations will be held with the Burgeo Town Council, Burgeo First Nations, government departments, and other relevant organizations to better determine the issues and opportunities as they relate to the conservation of the Burgeo watershed. Public will be provided an opportunity to provide input through an online forum (Covid restrictions limit large public meetings). This process will result in the development of a Conservation Plan for the Burgeo watershed. The plan will identify issues and opportunities, facilitating greater coordination between stakeholders, and guide more efficient and effective conservation efforts of this important salmon habitat. To raise awareness of salmon and salmon habitat, a Green Team will be employed to organize public awareness events in Burgeo throughout the summer.
