Ecology

The Kirkland lake region is a heavily forested area consisting of its most dominant trees black spruce, jack pine, trembling aspen, white birch, white spruce, balsam, poplar, and balsam fir.

The forest is home to many animals including moose, beaver, muskrat, snowshoe hare, as well as marten, ermine, fisher, otter, black bear, wolf, and lynx.

Multiple wetlands and lakes support many bird species including great blue herons, ducks, geese, and the common loon. Birds such as grouse, partridge, robins, blue jays, and grey jays find shelter in the area’s trees and ground.
