Baie Verte (Fletcher Island)

This 90 hectare (223 ac.) set of coastal properties represents some of New Brunswick’s largest remaining undeveloped areas along the southern reaches of the northumberland strait. Only 30 km northeast of Sackville, its expansive salt marshes, eel-grass beds, tidal creeks and mixed forests make it a prime location for numerous species, including wood frog, great blue heron, redbelly snake, black bear, porcupine and harbor seal. Given the location and the habitat types in the area, it’s possible to see more than 200 bird species throughout the year!
