FREDERICTON (CNB) - The provincial government is investing more than $1million from the Environmental Trust Fund (ETF) this year in 42 projects in southeastern New Brunswick.

Environment Minister Rick Miles made the announcement today.

"I am pleased that the Environmental Trust Fund could provide support to southeastern New Brunswick through these environmental projects," said Miles. "Our government is strongly committed to promoting environmental sustainability and supporting environmental stewardship."

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.
