Little Musquash Cove Cleanup
Join us as a part of the Great Fundy Coastal Cleanup to tidy up the tides!
Saturday, August 20
9 a.m.–3 p.m.
We need your help in cleaning up a portion of the little Musquash Cove, a beautiful coastal beach that is a part of the nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC’s) Musquash Estuary Nature Reserve. At this day-long event, we will be removing garbage that has washed up on shore. If you are looking for an opportunity to give some TLC to a local New Brunswick cove while enjoying breathtaking views, this is the event for you!
The Musquash River winds through the Wabanaki (Acadian) forest and many marshes to meet the Bay of Fundy, creating a biologically rich habitat. The result of the highest tides in the world, the Bay of Fundy creates a unique and diverse coastal ecosystem for many at-risk species and migratory birds. Along with the animals, the Musquash Estuary is a popular destination for all kinds of hikers and birders.
For more information, please email Caroline Blakely, conservation engagement intern, NCC, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 506-440-6251.
