Come one, come all (and on time)! Wednesday March 22nd at 7pm we will be having a joint presentation featuring The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (7-8pm) as well as Trails BC (8-8:30)!
Below's a look of what each presentation will be all about!
Léon Lebrun (Trails BC President) laid out the following:
- We will be talking about a special program that we have launched as of March 1st called TCT25 Great Trail Adventures for Canada 150. We are looking for ways of publicizing this to the young people in the community.
- We are also trying to find ways of making the younger generation aware of the conflicts we are having on our trail system, in particular the rail trails making up the Trans Canada Trail in British Columbia. With this awareness, do some of our young people see this to be worthwhile enough to help take on the crusade to promote quality experiences on the Trans Canada? The issue is incompatibility of motorized recreation overtaking more than 525 km of non-motorized designated rail grades in effect displacing the non-motorized users.
(Trails BC is looking forward to making this an open discussion with our members for some feedback)
CPAWS: Stand Up for Parks Campaign Presentation
BC has some of the most beautiful public parks in the world, but they’re under threat. For almost 20 years now BC Parks funding has stagnated, leaving trails to go unmaintained and wild areas unprotected.
The BC chapter of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS-BC) has launched a campaign called Stand Up for Parks, calling for more funding for BC Parks. Our presentation will talk about the current state of BC Parks, how they got to be where they are today and what we as outdoor enthusiasts and parks users can do to defend them.
Hope to see you all there!
