Winnipeg has always been a busy city. With the geological environment we have here, it is not a surprise that a lot of that environment has been exploited over the years. Manitoba has many places where the earth has given up its riches for man to build and decorate with. Tyndall stone for the Legislature and lots of other buildings, Limestone for the houses and cement for concrete.
Not a sight for a natural reserve…
Rare are the cases where nature has been able to get back what it lost after man’s passage.
In the south west part of Winnipeg lies Fort Whyte, now know as Fort Whyte Alive. Here they have succeeded in transforming the industrial wasteland back to a haven of peace, quiet and activities for man and animal.
