NSLC Commits up to $1M to help protect fish, wildlife and waterways in Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia has always had a deep relationship with nature and water, and it’s a tradition the NSLC is proud to preserve. Over the past five years, the NSLC has donated $500,000 to the NSLC Adopt-A-Stream program, funding programs to improve the quality of aquatic habitat for fish and other wildlife in and around our waterways. Thanks to this unique partnership with the Nova Scotia Salmon Association, thousands of streamside trees have been planted, dozens of waterways have been restored, and nearly 100 km of fish passage has been brought back to their natural state.

Based on the tremendous success of the CEO Bret Mitchell gets help from Wade Keller of Labatt’s as they issue the latest cheque to Rene Aucoin of the Nova Scotia Salmon Association.program, the NSLC is proud to extend its financial support for up to five more years, bringing the total contribution to $1M during the entire, ten-year period.

“With the NSLC’s commitment, we can continue to provide funding and technical support to dozens of local community groups who volunteer their time and resources to help restore freshwater habitats and enhance fish populations in our rivers and streams,” said René Aucoin, President, Nova Scotia Salmon Association.

“Together, we’re doing our part to make Nova Scotia a better place for generations to come.”
