Port Joli is located in the South Shore region of Nova Scotia, 170 kilometers from the provincial capital of Halifax. This 1,558 acre (630 ha.) natural area is known for its peace and tranquility, and provides habitat for a variety of birds, including Canada geese, endangered piping plovers, terns and American black ducks. It also boasts a very rich cultural and natural history, home to the Mi’kmaq aboriginal peoples as early as 1,200 years ago.
