Sandy Lake Wilderness Area is a 167-hectare environmental reserve in Sturgeon County. The County is in the process of creating a plan to protect the natural biodiversity of the area while finding ways the public can enjoy the space. This scope of work includes a Biophysical assessment of the park’s natural features including vegetation, wildlife and habitat, hydrology and water resources, as well as a review of safety issues, access management and human use. Over the next few months, residents and stakeholders will have the opportunity to build a park vision and provide feedback on specific aspects of the project including the park design and ongoing management based on the opportunities and constraints identified in the Biophysical Assessment. Park improvements will be funded through the annual budget process and grant applications.
