Forest Renewal

We’ve had a forest fire burning on Flindt Lake since July 12.  The government is “observing” it rather than “actioning” it.  Since the fire was started naturally by lightening and is in the Wabikimi Park, the response is to let it take its course unless it threatens life or property.  So far it has stayed away from our cabin.  Fire is nature’s way of renewing the forest. 



Last week, it had reduced it self to just a smolder and we put guests in camp.  While they were there it flared up again.  


Presently the fire is over 400 hectares or close to 1000 acres.  Here is a link to the Ontario forest fire map.  The Flindt Lake fire is “Thunder Bay 35”.

In a couple of year both the blueberries and the moose populations will be awesome in this area.
