You are currently at the boat launch of Mrs. T’s Lake. The Fort McKay Community Advisory Group named the lake in honour of Mary Tourangeau, a respected Elder who has spent much of her life trapping and teaching in the area. Community involvement is very important, as these compensation lakes will ultimately be turned back to those communities for their use.
This tour will visit three compensation lakes. Each was constructed to compensate for fish habitat impacted by nearby oil sands mines. Listen to the audio hotspot to learn more.
