Percival River Complex (Egmont Bay)

Approximately 50 km northwest of Summerside, Percival River provides Islanders with a view rarely seen on Prince Edward Island: forest all around you. Spared from major agricultural conversion due to low-lying wetlands, its forests and salt marshes feature a network of habitat corridors reaching all the way to the North shore of the Conway Narrows. With 546 acres (220 ha.) of conserved habitat, the complex makes a great home to species such as the magnolia warbler, northern leopard frog and barred owl.
