SASKATOON – The Meewasin Valley Authority (MVA) has issued an urgent request for funding from the province, the city and the university.

The MVA, which is the agency that oversees the river valley through Saskatoon, says they have seen funding decline over the years while the use of its trails and other facilities has steadily grown.

To fix the leaky roof at its interpretive centre, several kilometres of badly cracked trails and a number of problems at the Beaver Creek conservation area, the MVA says they need $2.7 million.
