Lake Winnipeg and Manitoba's boreal forest define our province

Lake Winnipeg and the boreal forest that surrounds it are part of an interconnected natural life-support system that operates for the mutual ecological benefit of all of its parts. Humans have a place within this system, too.

Continue reading about the the connection between our forests, our watershed and us in our latest report, A Living Landscape, created in collaboration with our friends at The Lake Winnipeg Foundation and Ducks Unlimited Canada.
