Enjoy these last days of summer warmth - camping, swimming, boating, fishing, walking trails, picnics, BBQs and more.
It is also the time of year that we look forward to all of the wonderful colours that the fall season brings along with cozy atmosphere like a warm glow of a bonfire, apple cider and apple pie, pumpkin spice "everything", corn mazes, pumpkin picking and our producers reaping the harvest of much hard work.

Red River Partners Summer Tour and Meetings
August 23-25, 2022 in Grand Forks, North Dakota

The event kicked off with a dinner and social at the Boardwalk Bar and Grill on the evening of August 23 with presentations on historic flooding, current flood reduction and water quality restoration efforts, and future needs. We enjoyed a bus tour on August 24 and a half day training with MAWD update on August 25.
A great summer to enjoy a parade!
It was so much fun to participate in and see everyone that came out to watch the Triple S Fair and Rodeo parade in Selkirk and the
Icelandic Festival of Manitoba "Islendingadagurinn" parade in Gimli!
Lake Winnipeg
needs a healthy
Netley Marsh!
Thank you to all that participated
in our Silent Auction Fundraiser

We, at the RRBC, also want to share a sincere thank you to Earl Simmons. Although he is no longer with us, we are so grateful for his generous donation of the Red River Valley Trade Route photographic art. We are pleased to be able to fulfill his wishes of using this donation to raise funds towards water education and water quality.

We are also very pleased to share that
the proceeds received from the sale of this photo
are going to the Canada-Ukraine Foundation.

Netley Marsh Renewal Project Monitoring
We are continuing to monitor the construction achieved in our
first phase of the project. In 2022, we have had significantly higher water levels compared to the conditions during our construction in 2021.

Our monitoring has shown definite vegetation changes with these water level fluctuations. Throughout our vegetation monitoring, we measured water depth, plant density, plant composition, plant height, signs of stress on the plants and captured the vegetation changes in drone imagery. 

We continue to aim to grow our successes in helping
to protect the Netley Marsh for us and future generations!

We want to give thanks to our partners and funding partners
that are bringing success to this exciting project!

The Netley Marsh is a crucial piece in keeping Lake Winnipeg healthy. We must all do our part!
