The Mars Hills Wildlife Management area (WMA) is an end-moraine ridge comprised of sand and gravel, with a few bog areas interspersed. The area is dominated by aspen forest and extensive stands of jack pine. White spruce, black spruce, and balsam fir are also found here. Wildflowers grow in profusion in open areas and a few grassland areas with tall-grass prairie species have been identified. The WMA contains an important wintering area for deer, along with the occasional moose and black bear. Ruffed grouse, sharp-tailed grouse, spruce grouse, a variety of raptors, and numerous non-game birds breed and migrate through the area.

Bird watching, hiking, horseback riding, berry-picking and mushroom picking are popular summer activities. A network of snowmobile trails crosses the WMA and cross-country skiers also use the area. The Department of National Defense uses the WMA for survival and winter camping training programs. The Libau Bog Ecological Reserve is adjacent to the WMA along PR 317. Several depleted gravel pits in the WMA have been rehabilitated, while others continue to be mined.
