The Art of Water Guided Tour
September 30 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Hike the littorals of the Bay of Fundy and Experience one of the many hidden best kept secrets of the Fundy
Trail Parkway. The theme is about immersing you in an environment dominated by fluvial geomorphic
processes which have carved out remarkable waterfalls, beaches, cliffs and an extraordinary submerged sea
cave only accessible at low tide. Explore this area of constantly changing earth dynamics and view the Fundy
Trail Parkway landscape like never seen before. We’ll hike the tideline out and slowly unravel the hidden ocean
floor and discover a true sea cave that will ascend your affection for adventure.
This Tour is led by the Fundy Trail Parkway’s very own Environmental and Resource Management Coordinator,
Devin de Jong. He believes, through immersive experiences in nature, parks provide the public with access to
areas that must remain in conservation and allow the development of an appreciation for their innate existence.
Join Devin on this tour of the Fundy Trail Parkway’s littoral zone, and immerse yourself in the livity of the Bay of
Meet at Parking Lot 2.
