of balsam/cedar lowlands and oak, beech, and maple uplands. Soil consists of
shallow organics or sands over dolomite rock. Resident wildlife species
include fox, grouse, snowshoe hare, white-throated sparrows, gray jays and
magnolia warblers. Timber wolves from St. Joseph Island, Ontario, may hunt
on the island during winter months. Eagles also use the island's large bay
for fishing each spring and fall.

used by boaters for fishing, water skiing, and as an overnight anchorage.
