Northwest of The Pas

The WMA encompasses a large portion of the Saskatchewan River delta and floodplain, a significant breeding and staging area for waterfowl. Only the river levees and scattered limestone outcrops rise above this system of wetlands. The marshes are managed in cooperation with Ducks Unlimited Canada. The area also provides excellent habitat for moose, wolves, black bears and furbearers. The large numbers of muskrats in particular has contributed greatly to the local economy over the years.
