Map of the Area
Any maps and map views are for general information only. Do not rely on them for navigation or to determine legal boundaries.
The Natural Area is a small island in Antler Lake, mostly covered in dense shrubs with occasional patches of mature birch and immature poplar. The east shore is occupied by a cattail marsh; the western shore is rocky with a one-metre-high bank. The NA is accessible by canoe/kayak only due to the shallow water of the lake (Alberta Parks website, 2012).
The hamlet of Antler Lake was developed in the 1950s and is home to fewer than 500 people who live on different shores and islands of the lake .
