The Centre itself is based on 178 acres of farm and forest with views of the Bay of Fundy where the world’s highest tides rise and fall over 30 feet twice daily. Our forests offer fabulous walking trails—glimpses of deer, eagles, hawks, and porcupines can be a special part of the Ross Creek experience.
