Natural Region Description

This natural area consists of rolling upland aspen forest, incised creeks, beaver ponds and small sloughs. Parts of several burned-over parcels now provide examples of post-fire successional vegetation. There are also numerous wetland communities including black spruce peatland, tamarack-birch fens, sedge willow fens and sedge grass. The area provides good wildlife habitat.
