Dog Lake WMA

Internationally recognized as a nesting and staging area for colonial water birds such as white pelicans, double-crested cormorants, great blue herons, great egrets, and various gull species.

Consisting of the waters of Dog Lake and all of the islands, the initial purpose of this WMA was to provide a safe area for nesting and migrating water-fowl.

The islands on Dog Lake have been a bird sanctuary since 1957 and game bird hunting continues to be prohibited on any of them. The lake played a vital role in the recovery of giant Canada goose populations in the Interlake.

Location/Directions: North on Hwy 6 to Hwy 68, on the way to the Narrows of Lake Manitoba
