MacMurchy Township End Moraine

What You'll Like :

MacMurchy Township End Moraine Provincial Park is a very small, low relief area of broken end moraine. The park contains bedrock exposures consisting of pillowed dacite to andesite lava flows, and tuffs of the Cabot-Calvin supracrustal assemblage, components of the south central Abitibi Subprovince in the Archean Superior Province. The dominant landform-vegetation types are the weakly broken end moraine covered withsparse, mixed coniferous, mixed deciduous, dense conifer forests, and wetlands. Six Eco-sites were identified within the park: one major (poor coniferous), four modest (open wetland, intolerant hardwoods, intolerant hardwoods-conifers, and moderate conifers), and one small (brush and alder).

Location: Approximately 45 kilometres east of Gogama and approximately 28 kilometres west of Gowganda.

Park Facilities: There are no visitor facilities available.
