The Sturgeon River House Museum is the actual 3-acre site of a Hudson's Bay trading post and contains a network of trails set in a provincially significant wetland. The low impact trails are a mixture of wood chip covered paths and boardwalks. The trails feature a host of special interest stations, a bird viewing platform, a jaunt-viewing platform that overlooks Cache Bay.
Within the entire system, four wetland types are found: bog, fen, swamp, and marsh. The variety and abundance of flora and fauna are indicative of the numerous ecosystems and habitats, which are sustained by these wetlands. The Museum will provide bilingual, year-round programming and foster wetland conservation through promotion, research, and educational and recreational activities.
