Park & Wildlife
Finding an elusive orchid nestled away in the boreal forest is a thrilling experience for amateur and experienced naturalists alike. This type of recreation has become a passion for some, for many others, a wonderful way to explore nature and learn more about the living world around us.
Many of the potential orchid habitats in Lakeland Provincial Park and Recreation Area remain to be explored. This presents opportunities for visitors and naturalists to discover new locations for orchids, and to document them. Park and Protected Areas staff are interested in hearing of new finds. A good photograph of the orchid and a careful description of its location will help to verify your finding and provide a valid scientific record.
We also need to be careful when looking at these delicate plants. Be mindful of their fragile nature... keep only memories and photos so that others, too, can enjoy.
You can find orchids throughout the Lac La Biche Region, with Lakeland Provincial Park and Recreation Area being a prime location for orchids.
