Deepening Cultural Connections
Our goal is to acknowledge, respect, and celebrate First Nations’ traditions, culture and communities in parks.
As resources becomes available, we work with a range of partners and volunteers on projects including
First Nations communities showcasing their heritage and cultural practices
First Nations elders and youth connecting around culture, traditions, and traditional ecological knowledge
Aboriginal guardians and student rangers assisting in park stewardship
Exploring aboriginal ecotourism opportunities.

BC's parks are quite simply WONDERS. They are places of majesty and beauty. They are gathering places for families and communities. They are engines of our economy in attracting millions of tourists to our province. And they are sanctuaries to millions of plants and animals, creating the biodiversity that gives British Columbians the clean air and clean water so vital to our healthy existence.”
