Protecting our Coast
What are we doing in 2023? We are planning on several activities that help support trails development and protect our coastline. For example, we are planning on working on Vargas Island in the Spring to clean up some beaches. Our activities will be advertised through our Events Calendar, newsletter and social media.
Why type of education programs do you have? We currently are working on two areas within our Code of Conduct: Firepits and First Nations visitor guidelines. Our Stewardship Coordinator is working with different groups to promote this work. We also give presentations to organizations.
How are you reporting on the condition of campsites along the coast? We rely heavily on paddlers to use our reporting system. In some instances we have used Site Condition Reports to direct clean ups to specific areas.
Why should I support this campaign? Volunteer organizations are doing a lot of the clean up work for free. In 2023, we have launched a wonderful new program called Coastal Caretakers which will make BC simply a better place through reporting and personal efforts to clean up beaches along the coast.
