Discover Kouchibouguac National Park!

June 2nd- 4th 2017

The name Kouchibouguac (Kou-she-boo-gwack) is of Mi’kmaq origin and means “river of the long tides”. Kouchibouguac National Park stretches along the Acadian Coastal Drive and boasts some of the warmest salt water north of Virginia. One of two wilderness Canadian national parks in New Brunswick, Kouchibouguac is a fascinating mosaic of bogs, salt marshes, tidal rivers, sparkling freshwater systems, sheltered lagoons, abandoned fields and tall forests which characterizes the Maritime Plain Natural Region. Natural wonders abound in this Park that boasts the second largest tern colony in North America. As well, the 25 kilometres of shifting sand dunes are home to the endangered piping plover and witness to colonies of both harbour and grey seals that frolic in the sunshine on certain sections of the dunes. At night, the sky is a true celestial masterpiece.

Our Festival of Nature field trips have been designed to allow you to explore a full range of birding opportunities, many different plant communities, and some unique excursions exclusive to this festival!
