AAA Editor Notes

Codroy Valley Wetlands Interpretation Centre is 5 km (3 mi.) w. of the Trans Canada Hwy. on Rte. 406. The estuary wetlands comprise 925 hectares at the mouth of the Grand Codroy River and provide sanctuary for migratory birds, including large flocks of Canada geese and black and pintail duck, smaller cliques of green-winged teal, American wigeon and greater scaup as well as rarely seen species. The center houses interactive exhibits focusing on concepts of ecosystems and estuaries. A marked trail along the river offers ideal bird-watching opportunities. Fishing is permitted in the Grand Codroy and the nearby Little Codroy rivers, which are frequented by such fish as Atlantic salmon. Picnicking is permitted.
