|Description & Services|
|Description of service(s)||The Irving Eco-Centre La Dune de Bouctouche was created in 1997 to preserve and restore the 12 km long Bouctouche sandpit.
Irving Eco-Centre: La dune de Bouctouche was developed by J.D. Irving, Limited (JDI) to preserve and restore one of the few remaining great sand dunes on the northeastern coastline of North America.
Located on the Northumberland Strait of New Brunswick, just minutes north of the town of Bouctouche, the dune offers a blend of recreational opportunities and learning experiences for anyone who wants to enjoy its special beauty.
Park visitors can use the boardwalk stretching along the dune to explore both the dune's wilderness and its salt marsh without endangering the sensitive ecosystems.
This sand dune stretches 12 km across Bouctouche Bay, a result of the constant action of wind, tides and sea currents since the last ice age. Every major storm, its shape changes.
A rich variety of marine and aquatic plants and animals, especially shorebirds and other migratory birds, make the dune their habitat.
Educational and interpretive displays and public tours are offered at the Irving Eco-Centre.
