The life which populates this amazing watershed
In New Brunswick, the watershed of the Meduxnekeag is home to the richest, most diverse, and highest concentration of remnant sites of mature Appalachian Hardwood Forest in Atlantic Canada. This forest type, also known as St. John River Valley Hardwood, contains many understorey plants rare or uncommon in the province. These include black raspberry, wild ginger, maidenhair fern, showy orchis, wild coffee, and numerous others. This biodiversity does not stop with plants and trees- it is also home to many animals, insects and fish!
