The NCC Designates Chaplin Lake As Protected

A large section of native grassland and part of an important shoreline between Moose Jaw and Swift Current are now protected. Saskatchewan NCC spokesperson, Michael Burak, explains that Chaplin lake is part of a western hemisphere shorebird reserve, and gets its designation because of the number of species of migratory shorebirds that will use the lake and adjacent land. The sanderling is a small, wading bird which nests in the Arctic and uses the Chaplin Lake area as a stop off point on its way to and from as far away as South America.
