Brokenhead Wetland Interpretive Trail
The Brokenhead Wetland Interpretive Trail is officially open!
This self-guided nature trail features 1.5 km of cedar boardwalk that meanders through a balsam fir forest, a white cedar bog and a rare type of peatland known as a calcareous fen. Located just north of Brokenhead Ojibway Nation (BON) along Highway 59 near Scanterbury, Man., the trail is adjacent to the Brokenhead Wetland Ecological Reserve, a culturally significant part of Lake Winnipeg's watershed that’s home to 28 of Manitoba’s 37 native orchid species, eight species of carnivorous plants and many other rare plants.
LWF staff attended the official opening ceremony on June 22. (We love wetlands for their biodiversity and for all they do to clean our water!) It was a treat to walk the trail and discover the many species found within this local ecological gem. We hope you enjoy these photos – and encourage you to visit the trail this summer!
