Tom Lamb Wildlife Management Area (1970)

Tom Lamb’s contribution to wildlife conservation was recognized in 1970 with the Government of Manitoba set aside 2,083 km2 of land near The Pas, Manitoba and designated it the Tom Lamb Wildlife Management Area.

The WMA encompasses a large portion of the Saskatchewan River Delta. The area is flat with several limestone ridges and river levees providing relief Aspen, jack pine, and black spruce grow on the ridges, while poplar, willow, Manitoba maple and green ash are associated with the levees. The WMA is a major breeding and staging area for waterfowl and provides habitat for furbearers, moose, wolves and black bears. Bald eagles use the WMA for feeding staging, and occasionally for nesting. It is located northeast of The Pas on PR 384. (source: Government of Manitoba)
