FREDERICTON (CNB) - The provincial government is investing $300,600 from the Environmental Trust Fund (ETF) this year in 11 projects in the Miramichi area.

Environment Minister Rick Miles made the announcement today.

"Our government is strongly committed to promoting environmental sustainability and supporting environmental stewardship, and the investments made through the ETF go a long way towards doing just that," said Miles.

Each year the ETF provides significant support to community-based initiatives to restore, improve, preserve and protect air, land and water resources in New Brunswick.

The department announced in April that almost $4 million from the ETF would be invested in 172 environmental projects throughout New Brunswick in 2010-11.
