Natural Region Description

This area includes transverse, parabolic and barchan sand dunes. There are jack pine-lichen woodlands on dune crests and diverse wetlands on dune depressions with black spruce-tamarack/sphagnum moss muskeg, sedge and dwarf shrub fens, as well as occasional open sloughs ringed by cattails. Aspen-paper birch stands rim wetlands. The area is used extensively for off-highway vehicle riding and snowmobiling. Parts of the area have been heavily disturbed by petroleum and natural gas exploration.
