Discover Parks Ambassador Program

The Discover Parks Ambassador program is back for summer 2021!

Our team of Discover Parks Ambassadors connects visitors to nature through education and positive interactions in BC Parks. The Discover Parks Ambassador program is made possible through our strong partnership with BC Parks. We continue to collaborate closely with BC Parks on the development and delivery of the program.

British Columbia has the sixth largest park system in the world and the Ambassadors will be working hard to protect it. Located across the province in multiple Parks, the Ambassadors will promote connection and appreciation of nature, outdoor safety and responsible park use, while fostering inclusion for visitors who are new to Parks.

Ambassadors will also be running Jerry’s Rangers programming for kids and families, including handing out the famous antlers which some parents will remember from their own childhood experiences in BC Parks.





In 2020, the Foundation ran a pilot program in collaboration with BC Parks in several parks and found that having Ambassadors greeting visitors helped reduce things like litter, people wandering off trails, safety incidents, pets off-leash, and negative wildlife interactions.  The Foundation also experienced a ton of interest and desire amongst visitors to learn more about parks and nature.
