Natural Region Description

A major portion of this Reserve consists of valley slopes of the Peace River. Maturing aspen/shrub forest with mixedwood stands covers 70% of the site. Moose, mule deer and black bear are common. Waterfowl nesting and breeding habitat is limited but the Peace River is a spring and fall staging area for ducks and geese. Six plant species occur that are beyond their normal range (drooping wood reed, turned sedge, striped coralroot, low milkweed, clustered broom-rape, alpine aster).
