In 2015, the MFGA is once again especially proud to be able to support several local initiatives and worthy organizations:
- • Our highest priority is providing funding support to Camp Centennial so that children in the community (who may be disadvantaged) have an opportunity to attend summer day-camp and enjoy its associated outdoor activities.
- • Closely aligned with the efforts to promote hunting, angling, and their concurrent conservation mandate, the MFGA provides financial support to the Atlantic Wildlife Institute (AWI) with their mandate to rehabilitate injured wildlife with the aim of eventually returning these animals back into the wild.
- • The Association has also provided financial support to the Atlantic Salmon Federation supporting their annual ASF dinner, and also with a salmon tracking project that involves PIT tags and in some cases satellite telemetry.
- • Each of the past two years we have financially subsidized interested female members to attend the Becoming an Outdoor Woman (BOW) program delivered annually in Fredericton, NB. The aim is to encourage more women to take up hunting, angling, and the myriad of sport shooting activities available to them.
- • For over 5 years they have also held Youth Range Days in the spring and fall to expose youth to sport target shooting. All shooting is done with .22LR rifles under supervision of club Range Officers.
- The MFGA is also pleased to be a supporter of the Petitcodiac Watershed Alliance and their efforts on fish and fish habitat restoration.
