    NCC's Shorebird Reserve and Interpretive Centre

    Johnson’s Mills is an example of a critical stop-over for migrating shorebirds. Every summer, massive flocks of shorebirds journey through the Bay of Fundy from the Canadian Arctic before heading to South America. Johnson's Mills becomes the stage for one of nature's great migrations, as its mudflats and beaches serve as a temporary stopover for flocks of shorebirds numbering up to a quarter of a million individual birds.

    This 220-hectare nature reserve is an excellent example of a diverse Acadian forest, including mature red spruce, sugar maple, red maple and yellow birch. Most of the trees on this NCC nature reserve are more than 80 years old.
