Eagle / Snowshoe Conservation Reserve

The Eagle-Snowshoe Conservation Reserve is located within the Kenora District of the Northwest Region of the Ministry of Natural Resources. It is approximately 95 kilometres northwest of the City of Kenora. This protected area includes the area from Snowshoe Lake along the Ontario/Manitoba border, and northeast along a chain of lakes including Chase Lake and Midway Lake, and then ends at Eagle Lake where it meets the Woodland Caribou Provincial Park boundary. The conservation reserve is part of the Woodland Caribou Signature Site and will contribute to ensuring the ecological integrity of the area.

Wabaseemoong Independent Nations represents the Aboriginal interests in the area of the conservation reserve (from Ontario Parks).
