Metigoshe Natural Area
The Metigoshe Natural Area is located north and east of Arnold Drive on SW-03-01-22-WPM in the R.M. of Winchester. The Metigoshe Natural Area is home to a wide variety of wildlife and native plant species and covers approximately 55 acres. The site is used by the Turtle Mountain Conservation District as an educational backdrop for school tours to the area. This area offers students an opportunity to explore different wetlands, plant species, and aquatic invertebrates in a safe, hands-on learning environment. Metigoshe Natural Area is also used by residents of the Lake Metigoshe Community and by tourists as a recreational area. The area includes an observation tower, fire pit, and walking trials that lead to a floating dock and bridge. The walking trails are used for not only hiking but also for cross country skiing in the winter. Signs have recently been placed along the walking trails which give directions and distances to different points for better navigation of the trails.
