Christina Lake and the Boundary area are abundant with wildlife. The Grasslands in the Gilpin area have a large herds of Mountain Sheep, mule and whitetail deer. A walk along the gorge section of the Trans Canada Trail is sure to have the local marmots investigating your presence. As we are a rural community it is very common to see whitetail deer in the middle of developed areas year round. Elk can be found at higher elevations along with the more elusive moose. You’ll also find everything from squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits to bears and cougars.
