Monroe Lake Foreshore Inventory Open

This dataset cointains the openly accesible data and reports for the FIMP survey carried out in 2009 in Monroe Lake. The shoreline of Monroe Lake provides residents and tourists with excellent opportunities to live and recreate in a rural setting. Monroe Lake is a smaller (54 hectare) lake, with one cluster of development. The lake has a very productive wetland in the northern region, consisting of sedges, willows, and floating vegetation (pond lilies). The lake is mostly surrounded by coniferous forests of varying structural stages due to recent forest fire events. The natural forest areas around the lake are recovering from the previous fire events.
