The Central Parkland Soils
Black 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.
