Plaque Text

The Canadian Heritage River plaques offer a brief glimpse into why a river has been designated to the System. They are often located nearby one of its historically significant locations, and highlight some of the most important natural, cultural and recreational values of the river. 

Kazan River Plaque Text

The Kazan River - The Kazan River valley is the home of the Caribou Inuit, the first people to live year-round on the treeless barrens. Here they have depended for generation on the vast caribou herds that migrate seasonally across the river. The Kazan was unknown to Europeans until 1770, when it was crossed by Samuel Hearne, and unmapped until 1894, when it was surveyed by the renowned Canadian scientist J.B. Tyrrell. Today, this wild river, cascading through the rugged Precambrian Shield, offers experienced canoeists spectacular whitewater and views of abundant wildlife, as well as insights into the Inuit way of life. For these outstanding features, the Kazan River has been proclaimed a Canadian Heritage River.
