The area defined here as the Annapolis Basin actually extends from
the Annapolis Basin inland to Maitland Bridge and the entrance to
Kejimkujik National Park.
The area is well known for its spectacular canoeing
and hiking, both in the
National Park as well as trails such as the Delap's Cove Wilderness
Trail and Mickey hill Pocket Wilderness. Visitors to the area have
an excellent chance to see a variety of shore
birds as well as waterfowl.
A visit to Kejimkujik National Park allows visitors an opportunity
to visit a 300-year-old Hemlock forest
and the only area in Canada where Blanding's
Turtles are known to exist. The Annapolis Basin itself
is the location of the worlds first Tidal
Power Generating Station and Bear River is now home to
North Americas first full operational Solar
Aquatic Waste Water Treatment Facility.
