Crawford Creek Alluvial Fan

The Crawford Creek Alluvial Fan is the last intact alluvial fan along the Manitoba escarpment. As water comes off Riding Mountain along Crawford Creek, the alluvial fan slows the water down and spreads it out. This allows suspended material to drop and the water is filtered as it passes through miles of wetland. This site has a boardwalk and viewing tower where visitors can view this natural phenomenon.
