The Daly Point Reserve just northeast of Bathurst harbor is a naturalist's dream as it boasts some 100 acres of pristine salt marsh and wooded plots as well as trails.
The Point is alive with wildlife and especially birdlife which attracts bird-watchers by the hundreds.
The field trail leads visitors through fields and pastureland. The various trees and shrubs are typical of growth on abandoned land which is slowly becoming woodland through a process called "succession".
The nature land is dotted with deciduous and coniferous trees in the area designated as part of the Acadian Forest Region. Visitors should be armed with binoculars for bird watching, cameras for capturing the scenery and a lunch baskets for a picnic.
