The park is a habitat for a great variety of wildlife species from aquatic biota to aquatic invertebrates, insects, plants, animals and over thirty different species of wild flowers. The river runs through forest, wetlands and bogs and is an internationally-known site for fossilized trilobites. The municipal heritage designation is limited to the boundaries of the linear park.
