Studies tell us that the Prince Albert Model Forest area was a spruce forest about 10,500 years ago, after the retreat of the last great ice age about 13,000 years ago. With the retreat of these continental ice sheets, which were up to a kilometer thick, the ecological landscape slowly evolved. Over time, rivers carved the landscape, climatic changes influenced soils and vegetation, plant and animal populations responded to the changing environment.

The first collage is a portrait of this environment, as it has existed for millennia, long before human habitation. A focal point is the majestic eagle, celebrated by First Nations as a creature of power and grace, and, with its great vision, as the eyes of the Creator. Also represented are the fish, birds, animals, plants, trees, water and skies – all precious resources that the Prince Albert Model Forest Partnership is endeavouring to sustain.
