The plant and animal species that occur at Kenauk are diverse and abundant unlike many of the surrounding areas. Nestled between the metropolitan centers of Montreal and Ottawa/Gatineau, Kenauk is a unique property that has never in it’s history been developed, offering santuary to a diversity of plants and animals. Its temperate forests and mosaic of water bodies offer a variety of habitat types from wetlands and marshes to both deciduous and coniferous forests, ensuring a wealth of diversity. Kenauks large, protected and wild character has allowed for the persistence of almost all native species, including some species that are otherwise of special concern or threatened.
