Champion Lakes Provincial Park (Map 2/G4)
This 1,426 hectare (3,525 ac) provincial park is home to three lakes and a variety of bird and animal species including the rare painted turtle. There are small mammals such as chipmunks, porcupines and squirrels and large species such as bear, deer and moose found here. Observable birds species include belted kingfisher, Canada jay, nighthawk, Oregon junko, western tanager and woodpecker. Waterfowl such as loon, mallard, widgeon and the great blue heron are more likely to be seen early in the season. Migrating waterfowl, specifically Canada geese, rest on the lakes during their journeys north and south in spring and fall.
