Netley-Libau Marsh renewal project focus of Ripple Effect –

Researcher Chris Adams joined CFAM Radio 950 Morning Show Co-Host Chris Sumner Friday morning for the next edition of Ripple Effect, brought to you by the Red River Basin Commission (RRBC)

Adams is completing a master’s degree at the University of Manitoba, which was funded through the Netley-Libau Marsh Renewal Project. I have been doing work associated with this project since 2020. He’s currently working part-time with the RRBC, looking at possibilities for future restoration works in Netley-Libau Marsh.

The Netley-Libau Marsh Renewal Project is a partnership between a variety of stakeholder organizations, with input from the University of Manitoba, government and private sector stakeholders, and Indigenous groups, which all share goals of restoring the marsh, and bringing back some of what existed historically.

The two also chatted about next week’s RRBC North Chapter Fish Dinner Fundraiser Gala. The money raised will go toward hosting educational presentations and events about water protection in the Red River Basin. The Gala is Wednesday, March 22nd, in recognition of World Water Day!.
