2019 – 2020
SMRA has spent about 2.5 million on habitat restoration and liming since 2014. We have completed 600 square meters of in stream structure work which is about 20 linear km. During the Fall of 2020 we spread approximately 850 tons of lime over 200 acres on our West branch. This project will help mitigate low pH levels and is the first of its kind in the St. Mary’s River Valley.
Our Association still says NOPE (No Open Pit Excavation)! Our fight to protect our most precious resource started late summer 2018. Now over two years later we still find ourselves immersed in the battle. We strongly believe for our communities in the District of St. Mary’s survival and ability to prosper depends on the St Mary’s River and its ecosystems thriving!
Here at the St. Mary’s River Association are committed to doing everything we can to protect the St. Mary’s River and our clean water. We encourage you to join us and do the same.
Thank you all for your continued support.
