Miner's Marsh

The Kentville Ducks Unlimited Site, known in town as “Miners Marsh”, is a stunningly beautiful area in a wetland habitat. It’s home to a variety and abundance of wildlife, and since the site is complete with viewing stands, picnic tables, and interpretive signage, it’s an ideal location for birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts.
