Natural Region Description

This park is located near the transition of three natural regions: Boreal Forest to the northeast, Foothills to the west, and Parkland a short distance to the east. Organic bogs and fens cover most of the central portion of the park while sand dunes and sand plains cover much of the rest. Black spruce bogs, tamarack-swamp birch fens and open sedge fens more typical of the Boreal Forest approach their southern limit within the park. Park visitors can enjoy a variety of outdoor experiences, abundant wildlife such as moose and deer, and the solitude of dense evergreen forests.
