Spruce Islands Provincial Nature Reserve
By Ontario Parks

Natural Features
The park is situated on a low-lying, sedimentary plain that was once the bed of post-glacial Lake Agassiz. The area is a jumble of swamps, string bogs, patterned fens, and small, teardrop-shaped isles of coniferous forest, surrounded by peat marsh. This pattern gave rise to the name "Spruce Islands."

Park Facilities and Activities
There are no visitors' facilities. To protect this distinctive but fragile natural habitat, activities are limited to nature viewing, study and interpretation.
