Maurice G. Street Wildlife Sanctuary
Background:
Maurice G. Street Wildlife Sanctuary features ancient flood-plain terrain as well as high ground overlooking the Saskatchewan River.

The 162 ha preserve, 17 km northeast of Nipawin, covers the portion of section 1-52-14-W2 that lies east of the Saskatchewan River, plus the south half of section 12-52-14-W2 south of the Saskatchewan River.

It is heavily wooded with Tamarack, Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea), White Spruce, and Balsam and Aspen poplars. Jack Pine (Pinus banksiana) is dominant on the sandy upland soil. The Large Yellow Lady’s-slipper (Cypripedium calceolus var. pubescens) and the rare Ram’s-head Lady’s-slipper (Cypripedium arietinum) grow in several locations.


How do I get there? 
Drive 6 km east on Highway 55 from the RCMP-KFC corner in Nipawin. Turn north onto a well-maintained road (which becomes a trail) and proceed for about 11 km. At the “T” junction, turn east (right) and then follow the trail as it turns north (left) to reach the large entrance sign to the sanctuary. Map


What can I expect to see?
The sanctuary is home to about 65 vascular plant species.

The list of 57 bird species includes Bald and Golden eagles, Common Loon, American Redstart and Pileated Woodpecker and many others. Fifty-five lichen species in 21 genera were identified.
