What You'll Like:

The bedrock of Mattagami River Beach and Aeolian Deposit Provincial Park is in the northeast extremity of the Quetico Subprovince, in the Archean Superior Province. Information on the surficial geology of this park is limited. The Quaternary glacial deposits of the park are likely late Wisconsinan in age. This nature reserve is dominated by black spruce and black spruce-larch conifer swamps on shallow organic deposits which overlie glaciomarine deltaic sediments. Six significant landform/vegetation representations are known to occur within this park. These include dense coniferous forest, mixed forest (mainly deciduous), and sparse deciduous forest on glaciomarine deposits. Wetland representations within the park include open fen, treed bog (conifer swamp), and dense coniferous forest on thin organic deposits which cover glaciomarine drift.

Location: Aapproximately 100 kilometres north of the Town of Kapuskasing and four kilometres north of Smoky Falls.
