St. Peter’s Harbour

St. Peter’s Harbour is a 34-acre (14-hectare) property that was a gift to NCC by a PEI family in memory of their late brother, Errol A. MacEwen. St. Peters Harbour, located on the north shore of Prince Edward Island, is a safe nesting site for the endangered piping plover. It is also home to osprey, bald eagles, black-bellied plovers and sanderlings. Other bird species found here include semipalmated plover, greater yellowlegs, ruddy turnstone and semipalmated sandpiper.
