Save Our Seine is able to accomplish so much through the generous support of our many partners.
Casera has been a key partner of Save Our Seine for 5 years, supporting our Green Team’s efforts to clean up the Seine River Greenway as well as providing support of the Adopt A River program which brings young people to the river to learn about ecosystems. Casera’s branch in the Southglen mall is located near the southern entrance to Bois-des-esprits.
The province of Manitoba has provided support through the Urban Green Team to employ a minimum of four youth each summer to sweep the river from the floodway to the Red River, sometimes multiple times a season, to remove garbage, clear logjams and help restore and repair the surrounding greenway.
City of Winnipeg Councillor Brian Mayes, St Vital Ward – Brian pledged in the 2011 civic by-election for the St. Vital ward to work for funding to support an Executive Director for Save Our Seine. Brian fulfilled this promise by donating a generous $28,000 of his ward allowance in the 2013 budget for an Executive Director.
Manitoba Hydro has supported many of Save Our Seine’s projects throughout the years including providing trees for our greening projects as well as supporting the printing of our newsletter.
