Boreal Forest Gallery


The eerie cry of the loon echoes across this northerly coniferous forest, which covers nearly one-third (164,000 sq. km.) of Manitoba. A waterfall tumbles down the rugged Canadian Shield cliff side. Moose browse in the late sunset while a Cree family engages in rock painting and gathering food. Old and new mix freely in this land of contrasts. However, each year the traditional trapping and fishing economy loses ground to economic activities such as mining, forestry, and hydro-electric development.
