This park contains one of the most diverse intact hill systems in the Boreal Forest Natural Region. In 2004, the provincially rare aquatic plant quillwort was discovered here. The park contains peatlands, a California gull colony, and one of Canada's only free-roaming wood bison herds outside of Wood Buffalo National Park. Osprey and bald eagles nest in the larger trees around the lakes. Lakes in the park support lake trout, lake whitefish, cisco, Arctic grayling, walleye and yellow perch.
