Shell True North Forest
This approximately 1,700-acre site is located in northwestern Alberta near Moonshine Lake Provincial Park. The small town of Spirit River lies 30 km to the east, and Grande Prairie lies 80 km to the south. The Ksituan River flows across the site in a west to east direction; the associated riparian area is relatively unaltered by human activity. With the exception of the Ksituan River valley, the topography is undulating to gently rolling, with a mixture of forested and agricultural areas. A historic homestead is located in NW-14, consisting of one main building, two smaller out buildings, and several pieces of old farm machinery. High densities of ungulates occur in this area, including moose, elk, and white-tailed and mule deer. Black bears, coyotes, and snowshoe hares also occur here. The former landowners are allowed to hay and graze the site.The pond on SW-10 is stocked annually with brook trout. Permission is not required to access the pond for fishing.
Day use only. No open fires. Foot access only. The 15 acre subdivision in SW 15 is excluded from all recreational activities.
