|Information||The McIntosh Run Watershed Association (MRWA) began in 1994 as a voice for the McIntosh Run, its tributary waters and the land within its watershed. The goals of MRWA are to further conservation and community stewardship of and to facilitate sustainable public access to the McIntosh Run watershed.
The MRWA has also completed sustainable infrastructure projects within the watershed to make this landscape more accessible to members of our local community. A multiuse Community Trail now runs alongside the McIntosh Run through Spryfield to provide public access to the river. A wilderness Singletrack Trail is currently being developed within the watershed to provide a sustainable wilderness experience to trail users. All with the aim of understanding and appreciating this diverse and beautiful landscape.The
MRWA is currently made up of over 50 members from the local community. Members meet monthly to discuss current projects and issues within the watershed. The association also hosts public events throughout the year.
|Meetings||MRWA holds monthly meetings which are open to everyone. At present these are on Tuesday evenings at the William Spry Community Centre in Spryfield, Nova Scotia. Click on the MRWA Events Calendar or check out their Facebook Page for upcoming meetings and trail building dates.|
