Moose are not abundant in the Blackstone uplands but they are sometimes seen feeding in this small lake. The abundance of shrubby willows around the lake and along the Blackstone River provide a good place for moose to eat and hide.
This may also be your first chance to see waterfowl in the uplands. Watch for northern pintail, american widgeon, northern shoveler, harlequin duck and many others. Also watch for a variety of songbirds like gray-cheeked thrush, and shorebirds such as rednecked phalarope.
Three kilometers to the east, you will see a gentle, northward sloping hump. This terminal moraine marks the northern limit of glaciation during the last Ice Age.
