Located in northern Saskatchewan, Lac La Ronge Provincial Park is dotted with 100 lakes and 1,000 islands. The northern half of the park is rock; enormous boulders rise from crystal clear lakes and rushing torrents of water thunder over remote rapids and waterfalls. The southern portion encloses the magnificent 40 square mile Lac La Ronge with treed islands of all sizes At its north end, Lac La Ronge empties into the mighty Churchill River over the spectacular 80 foot Nistowiak Falls. Because of the many lakes and abundance of fish, the area is home to a large population of majestic bald eagles. Researchers are particularly concerned about the health of the birds and their habitat; because Northern Saskatchewan is one of their last remaining breeding grounds. The park's Holy Trinity Church was established in 1860, and is the oldest building in Saskatchewan. It was established by the Anglican Church to convert the local residents, mainly Cree and Chipewayan natives, to Christianity.
