European and Metis settlement on the lake dates back to the early 1800s; a Hudson Bay post was established in 1830. Lac La Nonne Natural Area (NA) is located on the northwest corner of the lake.
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.
Lac La Nonne Natural Area has gently to moderately rolling topography with young seral to mature balsam poplar forest and scattered mature white spruce, small stands of mature white birch and scattered, small, sedge wetlands. It provides good wildlife habitat.
European inhabitation dates back to the early 1800s as the lake was an important staging area for the Hudson Bay Company. The overland route to the Klondike included the lake . In recent years, algae blooms in the lake and invasive species have become a concern .
