Physical Features and Wildlife

There is a wide area of mountain ranges, rolling hills, high plateaus, and valleys. The southern boundary edges the boreal cordillera and the eastern end reaches the taiga plains. The western end is formed by the Selwyn range of the Mackenzie Mountains.

These are some of the wildlife that roams the area, both black and grizzly bears, wolves, moose, caribou, weasels, red fox, trumpeter swans, bald and golden eagles, and wood frogs.


The main tree species are white and black spruce, lodgepole pine, jackpine, subalpine fir, larch, balsam poplar, trembling aspen and white birch.
