The Central Parkland Soils

Canola Field South of EdmontonBlack and Dark Brown Chernozems predominate under grassland vegetation while under the moister aspen woodlands Dark Gray Chernozems and Luvisolics are most common. Dark Brown Chernozems occur under woodland vegetation on sandy parent materials. A strip of Brown Solonetz soils runs through the centre of the subregion from Vegreville, through Beaverhill Lake and into the Sullivan and Dowling lakes areas.
