NCC owns 634 acres of protected land and coastline in Point Escuminac. It is one of the few remaining places where the nationally endangered piping plover can nest and raise its young. This diverse coastline includes forest, bog, salt marsh, sandy beach and eel-grass beds. It`s also a birding paradise. Flocks of waterfowl congregate offshore while bald eagles, osprey and marsh hawks cruise the open wetlands and shorebirds feed and rest on the beach and in wetland pools.
