Discover Parks Ambassador Program
Our Discover Parks Ambassador Program has wrapped up for Summer 2022!
Our team of Ambassadors connected with park visitors through education and positive interactions in 19 BC Parks across the province.
British Columbia has the sixth largest park system in the world and the Ambassadors were hard at work trying to protect it. The Ambassadors interacted with park visitors to promote nature appreciation, safe outdoor recreation, and responsible park use. The team helped foster connections with nature for those who are new to parks.
The Ambassadors also led 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.
Some summer highlights include:
- 62,816 interactions with visitors
- 18,253 program participants
- 5,027 iNaturalist biodiversity observations
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.
Read more about our impact in our 2022 Report.
