FREDERICTON (CNB) - The provincial government is investing more than $554,000 from the Environmental Trust Fund (ETF) this year in 30 projects in the Saint John area.

Environment Minister Rick Miles made the announcement today.

"Investments made through the ETF are a testament to the fact that our government is strongly committed to promoting environmental sustainability and supporting environmental stewardship in the province," 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.
