Location of Document
The Gull River is a major river system in Haliburton County made up of three chains of rivers and lakes merging at Boshkung Lake. The author presents an overview of various attitudes towards the land and the way these perceptions altered the river over time. The major part of the paper details the development of the Minden Wild Water Reserve on the Gull River north of Minden Lake, which provides "world class white water" many months of the year. Concluding thoughts on whether these changes reflect positive or negative attitudes round out the discussion.
