Volunteer Positions

Volunteer positions are now available within the BC Marine Trails Network Association. You are invited to help us out! The volunteering may be a couple hours helping out at a Paddlefest booth this year or completing site condition reports or site assessments reports during a summer trip. Volunteering is a great way to give back.

Trails Development

Site Assessing

If you, your group or your paddling club is planning a trip in 2017  you might consider assessing sites for the BC Marine Trails with our site assessment form. We can also give you a higher access level to our map to locate sites that are not sufficiently surveyed.

  1. Send an e-mail to our data coordinator, Nick (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), and indicate which area your group might explore. 
  2. We will send you a list of sites that need to be checked.
  3. Examine the site assessment form and take one or more copies to fill out, returning them to the BCMTNA data coordinator when done.

Site Condition Reporting

When you are paddling and visiting sites send us a SCR—that is, a report on the condition of a site(s). We have both a fillable pdf form that you need to save and send to our stewardship director (e-mail on form) or we have an online form that is sent automatically to the stewardship director.

This is our site condition report (the fillable form only works in the Chrome browser). Fill it out, save with an unique name (the best would be the site name) and send it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your photos. 

Photos needed

Put your photography skills to work! Take photos to place on our map. We have a number of missing photos of various access points and campsites throughout the BC coastline. In some instances the photos are needed near your home! Contact Paul at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Vision

The BC Marine Trails Network (BCMTN) will be a series of interconnecting marine trails along the entire BC coastline:

  • designed with frequent access points, stopovers and campsites for users of small, beachable watercraft
  • to ensure continued coastal access for public marine recreationists to travel the BC coast and to land and camp along the way
