Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) Plans Day of Action

HCBC Staff
Created: January 26, 2018

ORC member, CPAWS-BC, is planning a day of action on Saturday, February 3rd to show our elected representatives that BC citizens care about public parks.

Adequate funding for BC Parks is essential to ensuring the integrity of our parks system, including hiring enough rangers and conservation officers to look after them, ongoing planning and management, and providing visitors with a positive experience. Over the past two decades, the provincial parks system has increased in size significantly, as has the number of visitors, but the operating budget for BC Parks has remained stagnant.

There are several opportunities for getting involved:
1. Sign the online petition and share it with your community.
2. Tweet, write or call your MLA and other key decision makers and ask them to #StandUpForParks.
3. Host an event in your area on February 3 or stay updated about scheduled events across the province by joining the Facebook page. If you're in the Vancouver area, join the CPAWS-BC team at Cypress Provincial Park.
Not sure where to start? You can take action for parks using this toolkit with resources on trip planning, sharing your message on social media, and writing in to your local paper.
For more information please contact Tori Ball, Terrestrial Campaigner.
P.S. Share your stories about public parks on social media using #StandUpForParks and you could win some gear in the photo contest co-sponsored by BCMC.
