Fundy Model Forest Project, southeastern New Brunswick

Project Description

Beginning in the late 1980’s and continuing into the mid 1990s, till sampling and Quaternary mapping were carried out in southeastern New Brunswick over an area corresponding approximately to the Fundy Model Forest.

The Fundy Model Forest covers an area of 419,266 hectares situated on the Bay of Fundy coast.  The eastern boundary coincides with the eastern boundary of Fundy National Park and extends northward to Salisbury.  The northern boundary follows the Canaan Road (Hwy 112), Canaan River and Washademoak Lake to the Saint John River.  The western boundary follows the Saint John River to the south and crosses the Kingston Peninsula at Kingston.  The southern boundary follows Kennebecasis Bay to Hampton, east to the Little Salmon River, and then south to the Bay of Fundy.

Sampling extended over the following mapsheets:
