Amherst Point Migratory Bird Sanctuary Professional Review and Guide

"Designated a Migratory Bird Sanctuary in 1947 at the request of neighbouring landowners, the Amherst Point Migratory Bird Sanctuary assumed its present size of 433 ha (1,070 ac) in 1980, and together with the 600 ha (1,480 ac) John Lusby Marsh makes up Chignecto National Wildlife Area. A surprising variety of habitats lie within the sanctuary, but 66% of its area is open water, marsh, and bogs, or controlled water-level impoundments, an environment ideal for waterfowl."
