Sandilands Provincial Forest

The Sandilands Provincial Forest is located within the southeastern area of Manitoba, Canada and consists of thousands of acres of sand hills, forest, wetlands, and mostly unpopulated crown lands. The area has been logged for decades, and it is popular for hiking, hunting, and camping. The large sand eskers and hills were left behind by the last ice age as the glaciers retreated and deposited large rocks, boulders, and vast amounts of sand.

Under The Forests Act, Provincial Forests were developed primarily as a source of sustainable timber supply for forestry operations. Today there are 15 designated Provincial Forests in Manitoba, totaling almost 22,000 km². Crown forests are managed for diverse economic, environmental, social and cultural uses.
