The surrounding forest is dotted with pristine lakes and creeks, providing habitat for many birds and animals, including deer, black bear, wolves, coyotes, moose, beaver, otter and several fish species. It is a mixed-wood forest, dominated by aspen and spruce, with stands of birch, pine, tamarack, black poplar, black spruce and fir trees. There are a wide variety of native herbaceous plants and shrubs, many of which are edible and useful for medicinal purposes. Much of the area’s forest has been marked by fire over the years, providing for a return of carbon to the sandy soils and rejuvenation of the ecosystems.
