Irving Eco-Centre: La dune de Bouctouche

Irving Eco-Centre: La dune de Bouctouche was developed by J.D. Irving, Limited 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 people who want to enjoy its special beauty.

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. A rich variety of marine and aquatic plants and animals, especially shorebirds and other migratory birds, make the dune their habitat. 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.

Educational and interpretive displays and public tours are offered at the Irving Eco-Centre.

Park upkeep and educational programs are fully funded by J.D. Irving, Limited.
