Habitat

A huge ecoregion hosting arguably the state's finest boreal forest complex. Northern hardwoods and upland conifer forest cover the majority of the IBA, with aspen and lowland conifer forests covering nearly a quarter of it. Lowland deciduous, pine, and other forest types are present, as are very small amounts of wetland (emergent and shrub swamp).
