Other Information

Town Creek Natural Area, 10 km south of Winfield, encompasses a large black spruce fen and small creek in rolling moraine with aspen on upland and willow wetlands in depressions; it provides good wildlife habitat.

A Town Follows a Blindman. Despite its proximity to Pigeon Lake and Battle Lake, nearby Town Lake and Town Creek drain into the Red Deer River and thence into the South Saskatchewan via the Blindman River. Thus, the NA is near the height of land that separates the North and South Saskatchewan River basins [1].
