MANITOU MOUNTAIN PROTECTION PLAN

 

Where is Manitou Mountain?

Manitou Mountain Conservation Reserve is located approximately 14 km east of the town of Dubreuilville just south of the community of Lochalsh. The conservation reserve (CR) has an area of 532 hectares and consists of hummocky, irregular topography of kettles and kames, with moraine ridges. The CR is within the Magpie Forest Management Unit in the Wawa District.​

Manitou Mountain Area

Areas in and around Dog Lake have been used extensively and a large portion of that use has been documented through a Traditional Ecological Knowledge Report. Ohio Point on Dog Lake shows evidence of a 4000 year old Indian Village adjacent to Manitou Mountain. A concentration of stone tools, spears and scraping tools have been found in the area (Nolan, undated). A small prehistoric campsite was found on Lovers Beach directly across from Manitou Mountain. The cove adjacent to the beach provided good fishing in the past as it does today (Nolan, undated). Dog River is utilized to gain access to other inland lakes for fishing, hunting and trapping. This area was also utilized for growing vegetables as the soil in Missanabie was unsuitable (Nolan, undated).​ Read More
