The Oak Lake Sandhills and Wetlands are where lush marshes meet rolling sandhills, creating critical habitat for Manitoba’s only lizard, the endangered pairie skink.
The surrounding prairie and sandhill slopes support rare plants, such as prairie spiderwort, smooth goosefoot and hairy prairie-clover.
