We believe that the Salmon River is precious and loaded with natural riches, and we want to ensure that it will continue to be so in the future.
We are a non-profit organization formed in 2004 made up of volunteers with an elected board of directors. The funding for projects is raised through membership fees, donations, grants, sponsorship and fund raising events. We are people who enjoy the benefits of the ecologically healthy and beautiful watershed of the Salmon River.
Statement of Community Outreach:
Shoreline Planting Program Available!
Quinte Conservation is offering a shoreline planting program on an ongoing basis for landowners in the Quinte region, i.e. – the Salmon, Napanee, and Moira river watersheds.
The program includes a free (confidential) site visit, the creation of a customized shoreline-planting plan, and Ontario native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers. The cost will vary with individual needs, such as site size and number of plants.
The program is subsidized and there is funding help available. Friends of Salmon River can contribute some money for landowners in our watershed who would like assistance with the cost of the program. We are eager to see more restored shorelines to help preserve habitat and prevent erosion (and all the essential services that well vegetated shorelines provide). As well as the creatures living in rivers and lakes, there are so many species that feed and breed/raise young in the shoreline zone.
If you are interested, the first step is to apply directly to Quinte using the link above. But if you know of someone interested who is not online, please have them contact: Maya Navrot, Outreach and Stewardship Coordinator at email@example.com
Friends – Please take good care of your shoreline, it is vital to the health of the Salmon watershed.
