BC Marine Trails: Preserving BC coastal access for small craft users.

2019 01 Banner3

BCMT works to promote and protect the coastal marine environment through education and active stewardship. We advocate Leave No Trace practices, and educate the public on the safe and responsible use of public lands.

How you can participate:

Site Condition Reports

  1. On one of your BC coastal adventures be our Eyes and Ears and fill in a Site Condtion Report. Find the form here. Or visit our Site Condition Reporting Page for more information.
  2. We maintain a list of sites that need a Site Condition Report or light maintenance. This is our current list.

Site Stewardship

We organize clean ups, invasive species removal and some maintenance trips. These trips require a fair amount of organization, generally in the Spring, and are subject to change due to weather, availability of trip leaders, and other requirements.

Contact our Volunteer Coordinator and get placed on a site steward list. This is an informal list of people with interest in clean ups, invasive species removal and maintenance work. Our current volunteer coordinator is: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. She will notify you ahead of a scheduled event.
