At one time, red pine old-growth forests spanned across eastern North America. Today, only 1.2% of that old-growth forest remain. Located in the northeast corner of Greater Sudbury, Wolf Lake old growth red pine forest stands as a rich but fragile ecological gem. In 1999 the government of Ontario committed to protect Wolf Lake. However, mining claims and leases prevented its inclusion into the Chiniguchi Waterway Provincial Park and mining exploration activity continues in this fragile ecosystem.
