Canadian Shield Sampler

Along the trail, one can see mini-gardens of lichens, Labrador tea, moss, cotton grass and wild berry bushes with ingenious spruce and stalwart pine standing by like sentinels of time.  All of this will be pointed out to you by your seasoned guide, Rosanna Strong of Strong Interpretation. With beautiful vistas onto Prelude Lake, it is a tour for those who want to sample aspects of this beautiful part of the boreal forest.
