Stewardship: Site Condition Reports

Stewardship Program: Site Condition Reporting

2018 List of sites needing Site Condition Reports (note: we accept SCRs from all sites needing some clean up or protection)

A. Introduction

The BC Marine Trails Network Association Stewardship Program is a relatively new effort to engage its volunteers and members in site condition assessment, clean up and site improvements. It’s a two-step process where:

  1. Members/volunteers assess the condition of sites (Site Condition Report (SCR)) in order to notify the land owners (mostly government) about the problems of the site;
  2. Members/volunteers clean up and improve the identified sites as needed.

B. You can help by sending us a Site Condition Report

When you are paddling and visiting sites send us a Site Condition Report (SCR—that is, a report on the condition of a site(s)). You have three methods to fill out a form:

  1. Quick Site Condition Form - this works better for smartphones and is designed to be completed, quickly. 
  2. This is a list of sites that need Site Condition Reports. This year we are testing a different system so the list is limited. View here (coming soon.)
  3. Long Site Condition Form: This is an online form that can be used to fill in Site Condition Reporting information. Photos will have to be e-mailed separately to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  4. This is ourpdf fillable PDF form for Site Condition Reports. It you use the Chrome browser, it's a fillable form online; if you use Firefox save it and open in Adobe Reader or another reader. It's best to fill this form out, save it and then e-mail it as an attachment to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Photos should be mailed separately to the same e-mail.

The site condition report is completed following the seven principles of Leave No Trace. The principles can be viewed here.

C. Helping Us Clean Up or Improve the Sites

  1. We take information from your SCR to create a program. We locate problem areas and organize work crews for clean up or site remediation.
  2. You can volunteer for this work when the information is posted on our Events page. If you are not a member you are still welcome to send in a SCR to our stewardship manager(s) - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
