Natural Region Description

This natural area consists of a kame moraine, sand plain and sand dune complex with small alkali lakes; it preserves a large portion of an internationally significant shorebird migration area. Some of the world's largest concentrations of stilt sandpipers have been reported here. Reflex Lake supports one of Alberta's densest breeding populations of piping plover, an endangered species in Canada.
