Impressions - Mud Lake/Creek

This 158-ha proposed conservation reserve protects the extensive wetlands that have developed along the slow-moving waters and flat shorelands of the Muskrat River and Mud Creek systems. Flooded swamplands grow black ash, red maple and elm, while ringing the shores there are wetland-loving shrubs, ferns and sedges. Marsh areas are habitats for bullfrogs and rare black terns. People paddle or boat into this relatively intact natural wetland system

In 2001 an MNR report proposed the possibility of Mud Lake and part of Mud Creek becoming a Conservation Reserve.
