Events

Events used for fundraising for and raising awareness about MRA activities 

Annual General Meeting

This meeting is open to the public and we welcome anyone interested in what we do or in joining our efforts to attend via zoom. Please contact us for login details if you wish to take part.

Annual Dinner and Auction

The annual dinner and auction is one of the largest fundraisers the MRA hosts each year. With the exception of 2020-2022 for COVID-19, the event has happened every year since the foundation of the MRA in 1998. Local businesses and supporters donate items to be auctioned off and the proceeds go to purchasing land and furthering our conservation efforts.

Kids Nature Club 

The Kids Nature Club happens once a month on a Saturday for kids ages 7-10. A usual Saturday involves a combination of hiking, planned activities and free play on the Meduxnekeag Valley Nature Preserve. Spots for the club are limited, so if you are interested in participating check our social medias for more information.

Annual Wildflower Walk

Meduxnekeag River Association, in collaboration with the Nature Trust of New Brunswick, offers an annual Wildflower Walk each Spring. Held on the Sunday afternoon of the Victoria Day weekend in May, when the spring ephemeral wildflowers are at their best, we visit one or more Appalachian Hardwood Forest sites in the Meduxnekeag watershed. Led by naturalist Jim Goltz, the walks usually attract forty to sixty participants and provide an introduction to identifying local woodland flowers as well as an opportunity for appreciation and photography. The Wildflower Walks are free, although donations to the Association or the Trust are always appreciated.

Annual Bird Walk

Every spring, the Meduxnekeag River Association, in partnership with local bird enthusiasts lead a bird walk at the Meduxnekeag Valley Nature Preserve (Bell Forest-260 Bell Settlement Rd). Many birds nest in the Appalachian Hardwood forests and they can often be seen hunting and gathering food. Keen eyes and ears will be exposed to Ovenbirds, Warblers, and if you're really lucky a Scarlet Tanager or the Barred Owl that call these forests home.

We will continue to monitor the situation with COVID-19 and if it is safe to do so, a date will be set for the annual spring bird walk in spring 2021.

Guided Walks & Snowshoe Outings 

We offer guided walks on our trails for small groups on request. Throughout the winter, snowshoe outings can be booked for small groups on our trails at Bell Forest and Bell Flats. We do not provide snowshoes; however, they can be borrowed from the local library using a library card.
