The Kentville Ducks Unlimited Site also known as “Miner’s Marsh” is found in a wetland habitat constructed by Ducks Unlimited Canada which supports a variety and abundance of wildlife. 
The protected site also includes 1.7 kms of maintained trail which was built by the Town of Kentville in partnership with Health Promotion and Protection, the Rotary Club of Kentville and Michelin. 
The site is complete with viewing stands, picnic tables and interpretive signage which makes it an ideal location for birdwatchers, and nature enthusiasts. 
Miner’s Marsh can be accessed from the abandoned rail line trail at the intersection of the trail with Leverett Avenue, and from the parking area behind the County of Kings Municipal building on Cornwallis Street.
