Sea Dog Cove Nature Preserve

Bursting with blooms on the Kingston Peninsula!On the historic Kingston Peninsula, at the Sea Dog Cove Nature Preserve, you'll find 700 m (2,296 ft.) of Kennebecasis River shoreline and 3 km (2 mi.) of hiking trails. It is vegetated with bulrushes, sedges and a riverine forest of ash, cedar and red maple and includes a small meadow leading to the shore on the western side of the property. Known for being particularly beautiful in the late spring, you can see diverse flora and fauna at this nature preserve, including pink lady's slippers. If you're lucky, you might even spot an endangered peregrine falcon that's known to enjoy Sea Dog Cove's sheer cliff-face of Barlow's Bluff.  Find the ExploreEcoNB mobile application on Apple, Android, and Windows app stores ( for directions to this nature preserve, as well as information about other Nature Trust of New Brunswick nature preserves and many more natural areas to explore throughout the province.
