Together with Rumsey Ecological Reserve, this natural area protects the largest remaining undisturbed tract of aspen parkland in Canada; hummocky morraine (knob and kettle) topography; in wet years, the kettles fill with water; resulting potholes become some of the most productive waterfowl habitat in North America. Rumsey protects plants, birds and mammals at both the southern and northern extents of their ranges.
