About Kouchibouguac National Park

Kouchibouguac National Park is located on the east coast of New Brunswick, in Kouchibouguak. The park includes barrier islands, sand dunes, lagoons, salt marshes and forests. It provides habitat for seabirds, including the endangered Piping Plover, and the second largest tern colony in North America. Colonies of harbour seals and grey seals also inhabit the park's 25 kilometres of sand dunes. It is also home to the extremely rare and fragile Gulf of St. Lawrence Aster, though in 2006, storms eradicated most of the asters' colonies. The park's size is 238 kmĀ². Recreational activities in the park include swimming, cycling and hiking. In recent news, the park has reported sightings of the fisher marten in the area, making it one of the few places in New Brunswick that have fisher populations. The one thing that seems to attract many visitors are the activities. Kouchibouguac [pronounced kook-chi-bu-gwac] has many activities ranging from a river adventure in a war canoe to going seal watching to a talk about Milkman people
