We so much enjoy "The Project" as it is affectionately called by locals in this area. It is especially interesting to see the annual Snow Goose migration along with many other species of birds that stop along the Atlantic flyway.

We went with our extended family and everyone from young to old enjoyed all of the birds. It gave you the feels when they all picked up and swarmed and landed somewhere else. The visitor center was great too. The kids liked that.
