Come visit historic St Andrews New Brunswick, on the shores of the Bay of Fundy. Boasting the highest tides in the world, the Bay of Fundy is home to a dynamic and diverse marine ecosystem supporting many marine animals from lobster, to many fish, several species of sharks and even porpoise, seals and whales. St Andrews has long been a destination for visitors from near and far to enjoy a relaxed seaside setting, a beautiful and historic downtown, and famed Maritime hospitality. The Field Trip will include transport from Fredericton; lunch at the Atlantic Salmon Federation’s Wild Salmon Nature Centre; a boat cruise to see local wildlife, experience the power of the tides, and see active fishing communities; and time to explore historic St Andrews. The Fundy Baykeeper, Matt Abbott, will serve as your local guide.
