Impressions -Silver Creek Peatland

This 281-ha Conservation Reserve protects the Crown land portion of a provincially significant wetland in Site District 5E-11. It is the largest organic deposit in the Site District and supports extensive peatland dominated by black spruce, white cedar and tamarack forest. The wetland features that continue along the creek - such as a diversity of habitats, size relative to the watershed and interesting species -- rank as provincially significant as well. The meandering Silver Creek winds its way through this peatland on its way to Golden Lake.
