Pointe-au-Père National Wildlife Area: CW66-387/2017E-PDF

"Pointe-au-Père National Wildlife Area (NWA) was created in 1986 to protect part of the Pointe-au-Père cordgrass marsh and other habitats used by a variety of migratory birds, particularly shorebirds. The NWA is located in Rimouski, on the south shore of the Lower Estuary of the St. Lawrence. Despite its modest size—just 22 hectares—this protected area boasts a large diversity of habitats. Its salt marsh is surrounded by shrubs and contains numerous ponds as well as patches of herbaceous plants such as cordgrass."
