Other Information

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 [2].

The hamlet of Antler Lake was developed in the 1950s and has a total population of fewer than 500 individuals with homes on different shores and islands of the lake [3].
