The St. Mary's River Association is a charitable, non-profit organization providing leadership and engaging partners to enhance, protect, and promote the St. Mary's River as a healthy ecosystem for Atlantic salmon and other native animals and plant species, as well as providing a rich community resource.

Our Vision is health for the river, the Atlantic salmon and our community.

To meet this Vision, since 1979 the Association has collaborated with municipal, provincial and federal governments, industry, academia, local landowners, and special interest groups in research, monitoring, restoration and developing management plans for the watershed. Education has been a key component of moving toward our Vision with the Interpretive Centre and education programs informing local residents and the visiting public of environmental issues.
