We like to keep our members, volunteers, and the public informed about what's going on. We publish our own Mersey Messages newsletter a few times during the year, as well as an annual Volunteer News booklet.
Throughout the year, a few newsletters are compiled to let you know about the exciting projects and happenings at MTRI and in the field. If you would like to receive our newsletters via email as they are published, sign up to become a member of our co-operative!
MTRI works collaboratively with Parks Canada, Acadia University, Bear River First Nations, and other industry, government, and community groups to deliver engaging volunteer programs to local communities. Species at Risk is the focal point of our efforts, and each year since 2006 we have collaborated in the creation of these "Volunteers News" booklets, which are yours to view below.
