The only bilingual province in Canada, New Brunswick consists primarily of forested uplands and lies entirely within the Appalachian Mountain Range. This is the area to visit to see the effects of glacial periods and tidal erosion. The Fundy National Park showcases varying habitats, from forest to bog to undersea – at low tide you can walk on the ocean floor and examine the undersea life. At high tide, this is covered by 15m of seawater. It is these extreme tidal ranges (the highest in the world) which have helped to form the Hopewell Rocks in the upper reaches of the Bay of Fundy. These will fascinate your students, with their narrow bases and unusual shapes exposed at low tides. There are many hiking and biking trails throughout the park, making this an ideal trip for living biology and geography lessons. The extreme tidal range has also given rise to the unusual Reversing Falls at St John – where the tide rises so fast and powerfully that the water is forced back up the River St John, creating a waterfall that flows upstream! 12 hours later, the normal flow resumes and the falls flow in the opposite direction. The Kouchibouguac National Park gives a different flavour to your trip, as it includes salt marshes, forests, barrier islands, lagoons and sand dunes. There are swimming, cycling and hiking opportunities as well as canoeing and seal-watching. History has its place in New Brunswick too, and the Roosevelt Campobello International Park preserves the house and surrounds of the summer home of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt and their family. Or visit the Acadian Historical Village – a living museum showcasing Acadian life in the 1800 and 1900s. You can also visit Fredericton’s Garrison at St John, where the changing of the guard occurs twice daily and where there are many surrounding museums and examples of Victorian architecture.
