Pugwash Estuary

The Pugwash River Estuary is a mixture of forest and marsh that borders some of the most sought-after oceanfront property in Nova Scotia. Sheltering prime habitat for waterfowl ranging from Canada geese to green-winged teals, Pugwash is truly a spectacular and valuable conservation area. It is the largest estuary along the Northumberland Strait of Nova Scotia, and particularly unique in that it exhibits a largely undeveloped shoreline.
