Report for Us

Your input is critical. When you’re at a site, let us know what it was like. It will help keep things safe and sustainable for everyone who wants to enjoy the BC coast.

Site Condition Report (SCR)

Send us basic information about possible problems at a site. This can help us understand issues and set maintenance strategies.

Time to complete: Ten minutes or less.

When to complete: Any time you visit any site, including launch sites, parks and day use sites. 

Additional input: If you have photos that would help us visualize the issues you are raising, or additional comments or concerns, please email them to Nick at: newsites@bcmarinetrails.org

New or potential Site Assessment Form

Help us ensure our sites meet safety and logistical standards.  Play a critical role in marine trail development on the coast by providing a comprehensive assessment of a location you are visiting. 

Time to complete: A half an hour, though possibly more depending on the complexity of the site.

When to complete: Best undertaken at low tide. Fill this report when visiting any location, but it is most applicable to undeveloped wilderness sites. If unsure consult with us before you leave to ensure a site assessment is needed at the location you will be visiting. 

Basic requirements: Fill out this online site assessment form and follow this overview as a reference for what to look for. You can print and take the overview with you to take notes to fill out the online version when you’re home again. Alternatively, use a Word or PDF version to complete off-line.

For best results: Site Assessments (not Site Condition Reports) do require training. Periodically, we make announcements for training in Site Assessments. Watch our newsletters or social media for notices.
