2016 Festival of Nature
Discover Restigouche county!
May 27th- 29th 2016
Discover New Brunswick’s “True North”, where the Appalachian Mountains, the magnificent Restigouche River, and the Bay of Chaleur all meet to create a spectacular landscape at any time of the year. This is also the place where north meets south – many of our bird and plant species find their southernmost habitat here, while many others find their northernmost.
Our field trips have been designed to allow you to explore a full range of birding opportunities, many different plant communities, and some of the most important ancient fossil beds in North America. Of course, you will not have an opportunity to sample everything that we have to offer – and that is part of our scheme to lure you back this way time and again after the Festival of Nature itself wraps up. And, we know that you will be charmed by the hospitality you will experience while you are here.
