Junction Lake (D4-129)
This 289-acre site is approximately 22 km east of Vegreville. Access is on the west side from RR 125 or the east side from RR 124. This site has a rolling topography with trembling aspen and balsam poplar stands, wetlands and open fields scattered throughout. There have been several habitat enhancements done on the site, including tree plantings, wetland restoration and habitat management for shorebirds. A shorebird viewing platform is on the east side of the shallow alkali lake located in the northwest side of the property. Many waterfowl use this and the other small waterbodies on the site. Other wildlife includes moose, white-tailed and mule deer, black bears and ruffed grouse.
To protect sensitive shorebirds and their habitat, do not walk on beaches and shorelines of waterbodies identified on the site map from April 15 to August 15. Day use only. No open fires. Foot access only.
