Very similar to other large man made statues across North America. This one happens to be a Canada Goose. The travel info is next to it and would recommend a visit there as well. The lady there was very friendly and informative.

We stopped here to get some information for our journey around Lake Superior. You have to get a picture of it when passing through!

Nice statue and interesting articles about the area. The Visitor Center is located beside the statue. Even though you can see it from the Highway, it is nice to stop and get a better look.

This one was nice as goose statues go. It was really quite big. You couldn’t miss seeing it right off the road. I am not sure though that we would drive somewhere off the road to have a look.

This is about 5 minutes off the highway, and a fun excursion. The Visitors Center is well stocked with information and maps. The young man working there was knowledgeable. Thanks!

Passing through Wawa on the way to Sault Ste. Marie, the Wawa Goose statue is a large majestic site by the street that overlooks the Trans Canada Highway to the west. Very impressive as was the interpretive museum.

This was one of the Ride Superior stops, we received a towel from the visitor center. The statue is a great photo op. Nice little visitor center and rest stop.

The Wawa Goose is a must see!!! Great to see the brand new Goose looking great and not weathered. This is one of the most iconic things that I look forward to seeing in every drive up along the North shore of Lake Superior.
