We are actively working on new campsites, maintaining new campsites (i.e. bear boxes in Howe Sound), cleaning up debris (i.e. Topknot Point) and working on your behalf. Over 5000 volunteers hours were recorded in 2017.

Site Condition Reporting

Site Condition Reporting helps the 'STEWARDSHIP' of the marine trails. We need the public and paddlers to use our Site Condition Reporting form to help report on the conditions of campsites on the BC Coastline. We have a form and lists (available in early April 2017) of which sites need to be checked. Visit our Site Condition Reporting page at: https://www.bcmarinetrails.org/how-to-help/stewardship

Your Local Paddling Club

Most paddling clubs in British Columbia are already supporters of the BC Marine Trail Network. Joining your local club will not only keep you apprised of developments but will also contribute to the overall support.

Help spread the word!
