The land from which freshwater drains into the estuary is called a “watershed” and serves as a giant sieve filtering out harmful sediment and pollutants. This watershed can consist of many different types of habitat (wetlands, woodlands and pastures) as the freshwater makes it way to the estuary via creeks and rivers. The brackish waters of the lower Peace River are home to an extremely diverse and beautiful community of marine and wetland wildlife. Herons, egrets, ibis and many other wading birds are frequently seen feeding along the shoreline while raptors such as the bald eagle, red-shouldered hawk, harrier and osprey soar over head.
