OROMOCTO, N.B. — Three projects that will provide better access to New Brunswick’s wetlands and improved roads for residents and tourists will receive $3.7 million in federal funding.
In the Town of Oromocto, funding will support the development of a 300-square-metre Gateway Wetland Tourist Information and Interpretive Centre.
