The Village of Cap-Pelé and Beaubassin-est rural community watershed group--Vision H2O--is a non-profit environmental organization located in Southeast New-Brunswick. In collaboration with local and regional stakeholders, Vision H2O works from an integrated water resource management approach, which is a coordinated, goal-directed process for controlling the development and use of rivers, lakes, oceans, wetlands, and other water assets.
Vision H2O plays an active role in many projects aiming to preserve our local environment.
Vision H2O works in collaboration with local organizations such as municipalities and other environmental groups.
Environmental education is a key component of Vision H2O's mission.
Since 2003, Vision H2O, the Village of Cap-Pelé and Beaubassin-est rural community watershed group works on various environmental projects to maintain a healthy ecosystem so as to conserve sufficient healthy water to provide for aquatic life and human communities. Water quality monitoring, habitats and aquatic species inventory, the development of an ecological park at the community center in Cormier-Village (Eco-park), environmental education and restoration of coastal dunes using Christmas trees are among the projects recently undertaken by the group.
Being a not-for-profit organization, the projects are funded by various programs like the New Brunswick Environmental Trust Fund and the New Brunswick Wildlife Trust Fund. However, the group is pleased to announce that it is now a registered charity. For the past 10 years, the group, with the help of the community, has had many successful projects. Thanks to all the volunteers and community organizations for their participation in the various activities organized by the group.
Please contact us if you wish to contribute to Vision H2O or for more information.
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2014
Annual General Meeting on April 24 at 7 pm at the Cap-Pelé municipal building.
We are very pleased to announce that Poul Jorgensen , Director at The NB Trails Council, will be our guest speaker this year.
A snack will be served to the public at the end of the meeting.
Vision H2O is proud to be involved in the development of several aspects of the new community center of Cormier-Village, which is located at 645, Route 945 in Cormier-Village.
Vision H2O is currently collaborating with Énergeia inc., the designers of this energy efficient building, as well as the board of directors of the community center of Cormier-Village to create an Ecopark in the Acadian forest which is located just behind the center.
The primary goal of the Ecopark is to raise awareness and educate the public on the importance of the diverse ecosystems of the region and to encourage their preservation.
A fauna and flora inventory was done by Vision H2O in collaboration with Roland Chiasson, biologist at Cape-Jourimain, in order to further are understanding on the site's biodiversity. This information was very important for the planning and development of the park`s trails and interpretation sites.
We invite you to come and discover the trails of the Ecopark so you may observe the beauty and variety of the region! For more information, visit the facebook profile of the Ecopark or contact the Executive committee of the Centre Culturel et sportif of Cormier Village at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Village of Cap-Pelé and the Beaubassin-est Rural Community adopted a strategic planning tool, the Green Strategy and assigned Vision H2O to lead its implementation. This plan, which is based on the principles of sustainable development, hopes to create viable and promising communities by making individuals more conscientious of the impact of their choices and actions on current and future generations.
