Within the reserve, there are 6,956 acres (2,815 hectares) that have been developed into tame pasture. A small area on the south side of the reserve has been reserved from any development, due to the wetness of the area. Adjacent to this area is a peat moss operation that harvests peat from the large peat bogs that are typical in this area.
The reserve has been looked at as a possible landfill site due to its location close to Highway No.16 and its large size. Fortunately, soil tests have shown that the subsoil isn’t adequate to be used for a landfill.
Provincial Grazing Reserves are popular recreational sites for the general public. Recreational access condition information for Provincial Grazing Reserves can be found at:
