Upper Bay Marsh - Sackville

As you proceed up the Bay of Fundy the topography changes from rocky cliffs to flat marshlands and mainly muddy banks. You should spend at least a little while exploring these ecologically important and historically interesting marsh areas.

Perhaps the best place, is from
Sackville, NB, a delightful and culturally rich town and home of Mount Allison University. The Tantramar marshes extend from the town, and you can walk along the dikes that protect this area from the high tides of the bay. The flat agricultural land reclaimed from the bay are dotted by marsh barns.

While in Sackville, make sure to visit the
Sackville Waterfowl Park and to spend a little while wandering the beautiful campus of Mount Allison University, the top rated primarily undergraduate university in Canada.
