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.

Other Information

The western boundary of the PNT approximately aligns with the border of the Municipal Districts of Lac la Biche and Bonneville. The surrounding land is likely Crown given over to grazing leases although the land ownership map for Bonneville is inconclusive in this respect [1].

In 1984, Frenchman Lake (to the north of the site) was the subject of land use study which recommend mixed use for this area [2].
