Welcome to ACAP Saint John's Field Guide to Tin Can Beach! This online resource is designed to provide the community with a comprehensive guide to the flora and fauna living in and around this one-of-a-kind urban greenspace.

Most importantly, the Field Guide to Tin Can Beach is a living document, meaning that it will continue to change and grow, and that's where you come in. We encourage you to visit Tin Can Beach, bring a camera - maybe bring a few friends - and see what you can find! Send us your photos using the form at the bottom of this page, or by email to office@acapsj.org, and we will help you identify what you saw and possibly feature it in the Field Guide.
