The Lincoln Wetland Natural Area protects a species at risk along the banks of the majestic St. John River. The property features a diverse mix of marshes, mudflats and old field forest, as well as a floodplain forest that contains silver maple, basswood and endangered butternut tree. Just a short drive from Fredericton, the 8.5 hectare (21-acre) property was donated in memory of Gwen Ferris.

The natural area provides habitat for migratory waterfowl, such as wood duck, mallard, American wigeon and green-winged teal.

The Lincoln Wetland Natural Area is a collaboration between NCC, the neighbouring Lincoln Elementary Community School and other conservation partners. The site provides a safe, enjoyable and educational outdoor learning experience for students, and its riverside walking trail is used by all ages.
