WRRA4

Membership dues make up nearly 100% of our income. They pay for all of our events and organizational costs. Without a sufficient number of paying members, we simply can’t provide you with the benefits you’ve become used to.

Please take a minute and pay your dues — just click on the button at the top right of this page.

It’s only $20/year per household - less than 6 cents a day. You get an awful lot for that!


And welcome to our website
. This is the place to come for constantly updated news, event information, contacts, history, and fun stuff about our West River area.

We hope you enjoy it and tell your neighbours about it.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions about this website or about the WRRA, please contact us.

Dog tick

In the past few years, the tick population in Southwestern Ontario has risen dramatically due to the widespread dispersal from migratory birds. White-tailed deer also play a very important role in the establishment of deer ticks as they are the source of the majority of blood meals for adult female ticks.

The Deer Tick (also known as the black-legged tick) is a growing concern as it can transmit Lyme Disease. Lyme Disease is a debilitating illness that infects blood cells in humans and dogs and can cause symptoms such as headache, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, and bleeding disorders.
