THE LARGEST COASTAL WETLAND IN NORTH AMERICA NEEDS OUR HELP!
The Netley-Libau Marsh has been deteriorating for a number of reasons,
to the point it is no longer a healthy functioning marsh.
Red River Basin Commission and its partners continue
to work toward the Netley Marsh renewal
as wetlands are a crucial part of keeping our waters healthy.
We are very pleased to share that we have recently completed
the first phase of this very important project.
Please see our Project Update
on the "Restoration Pilot Project" page.
Please help us protect the Netley Marsh for us and future generations!

A Very Similar Project - being done in Louisiana
Many Manitoban families have enjoyed and benefited from the Netley-Libau marsh in the past.
It is our duty to preserve it for future generations, but also for the multiple benefits

The Amphibex 400
The Amphibex 400 has been used for the provincial ice breaking program, it was originally meant to be a dredger.
Amphibex is a Canadian company located in Quebec. These versatile dredgers are also friendly to the environment: they are equipped with a residential silencer that reduces noise emissions and disturbances. Their hydraulic system also uses biodegradable vegetable oil that is safe for the environment
These machines have been used in Manitoba mainly for the ice breaking program.
