Upper Salmon River Estuary

Coordinates: Lat 45.599523°N, Long 64.947871°W

Upper-Salmon-River-Estuary Description: The mouth of the Upper Salmon River is a well-sheltered estuary with an important intertidal zone with lots of rich salt marsh that harbours a wide diversity of bird life.

Nature Notes: Historically, an important logging mill was situated alongside the river in the estuary. Logging was once one of the main economic drivers of the region; today, remnants of old dam related to logging activities can still be seen up river from the park entrance, at the end of the intertidal zone.
