Michael has for many years volunteered with various organizations local to southeastern New Brunswick, as well as those who work on the National level. His combined love of the outdoors and his keen interest in waterways has led him to support our organization, eventuallly becoming a member of our Board of Directors. He remembers what the “bore” once was, and can only imagine how beautiful the river was prior to the building of the causeway.He has watched with interest as the tidal bore and the Petitcodiac River ecosystem have slowly been returning to their former glory, thanks to research and hard work put forth from various local interest groups. This makes him proud to be a Board member of the Petitcodiac Watershed Alliance. It is a goal of his to see the return of Atlantic Salmon to the Petitcodiac River and its tributaries on an annual basis.
“Hopefully one day we can count on the fish returning as much as we can count on seeing the “Bore” — twice a day, everyday”.
