Learn about Atlantic Salmon while touring the grounds on your own or with a docent. The walking trails are very easy, short & pretty. I particularly liked seeing the small lake at the end of one trail.

We brought our family (adult children) who enjoyed the centre but I'm not sure young children would enjoy this centre. We were disappointed that we did not get a tour by a guide. Interesting history about wild salmon and their future conservation efforts.
