The Lower Bay of Fundy region has some of the richest marine life on the east coast of Canada. This exploratory Encounter with Nature™ multi-day experience will provide hands on classroom & lab sessions to learn about the biological adaptations of marine life found in the region before you explore a wide variety of coastal environments to discover these species for yourself. Come and explore some of the best sites with our expert marine biologists.
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Low to Moderate
You will spend time on local shorelines and intertidal areas that can be rocky at times. There are no defined paths and exposed rock may be covered with seaweed that causes slippery surfaces and hides solid substrate underneath. Sturdy footwear is a must and should also have some water shedding properties.

- Collect a variety of ocean species first hand from several Bay of Fundy habitats
- Learn more about your collected specimens close up in a lab setting
- Interact with a world-renowned scientist who has discovered and described more than 80 marine invertebrate species new to science
