The Land That Gives Life is filled with many shimmering lakes, rivers, streams and wetlands, teeming with fish and other aquatic life.
It is a magnificent natural habitat for abundant wildlife, among them moose, bear, eagles, hawks and songbirds—all nestled in the Canadian granite-shield.
It is home to such threatened species as the woodland caribou the Lake Sturgeon.
The Land that Gives Life was born with the retreat of the last Ice Age, 10,000 years ago. It has resembled, more or less, the same forest that is here today for 5,000 years—roughly as long as recorded human history.
And so, the animals that thrive here have always enjoyed this safe haven, one that is unspoiled by over-development and guarded by those who understand the importance of its sustainability.
