Wabamun Lake Alberta
National Topographic System (NTS) area 83G.

"There are three First Nations that have interest in the Wabamun Lake Area; Paul Band, Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation, and Enoch Cree Nation. Portions of the Paul First Nation Reserve are within the planning area. The Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation has interest in the planning area due to close relations to Paul Band through intermarriages and neighboring/sharing traditional Treaty lands. The Enoch Cree Nation has interest in the Wabamun Lake due to potential close family/tribal relations to both Alexis and Paul Band and they also share Traditional treaty areas. Metis Local 55 is also within this area, with interest in the Lake."

• to map the selected Core Area at a detailed level
• to interpret this soils information for settlement and
• agricultural uses
•to prepare, in addition to the Soil Maps, other maps showing
Present Land Use
