Collaboration helps increase visitor safety – moving rocks from Crean Lake channel

The channel into Crean Lake is shallow and some large rocks provide a public safety hazard. The Waskesiu Foundation Inc. and volunteers, in collaboration with Parks Canada, are leading a project to move the rocks. The Crean Lake channel, day use areas and trail/road are closed July 7, 8, 9, 2020 to enable the project to be completed safely and efficiently.
