Covering an area of 755 ha, the marshes of Lake Megantic were acquired to protect this unique habitat that hosts up to 127 species of birds, in addition to rare species like the bald eagle.

It is an important staging area for waterfowl and migratory birds, including species such as brant and Oldsquaw. It is also an excellent breeding site for black ducks, wood ducks and ring-necked ducks. A network of nesting boxes for wood ducks has also been established here.
