Nature and Culture
- Conservation - Flowers, trees and shrubs are part of the park's natural heritage, please don't damage or remove them.
- Wildlife - Wood ticks are most prevalent between March and June. These parasites live in tall grass and low shrubs, and seek out warm-blooded hosts. As potential carriers of disease, they should be avoided. Protect your legs by wearing gaiters, or pants tucked into socks. After any outdoor activities, thoroughly examine yourself, children and pets. If you find a tick embedded in your skin, the best way to remove it is by grasping and pulling it, gently, straight up and out with a small pair of tweezers, and disinfecting the site with rubbing alcohol. You may wish to save the tick in a small plastic or glass container for later inspection by your doctor especially if a fever develops, or the area around the bite appears to be infected.
Many different species of birds can be seen along the lakeshore and in the surrounding forest. Bald eagles are quite common in the fall when the salmon start spawning. Moose and bear may be seen travelling the opposite shore of the lake.
