Project Highlights


The Sandy Lake Wilderness Area is a 167-hectare Environmental Reserve in the west of Sturgeon County. A concept plan and biophysical assessment were initiated to identify potential amenities and natural area management approaches. The assessment includes things like the natural and sensitive features in the area.

The project’s goal is to establish a Sandy Lake Wilderness Area Concept and Natural Area Management Plan.
