Natural Region Description

Moonshine Lake Provincial Park was expanded in 1998 to link the park with Jack Bird Recreation Area, a parcel of land that was donated to the province by the estate of Mr. Jack Bird in 1978. The expansion incorporates a wildlife movement corridor between the two sites and adds a small wetland complex containing a number of beaver ponds. The abundance of birds and waterfowl (including trumpeter swans) makes Jack Bird Pond an excellent bird watching site. Surrounded by diverse boreal mixedwood forests, Moonshine Lake offers a variety of year-round recreation and wildlife viewing opportunities. Cast a line for trout from shore, from a boat (electric motors only), or through the ice.
