Just as nature has helped sustain our physical and mental well-being during the pandemic, it’s our turn to speak up for the outdoors.
BC has an extensive network of trails and recreation sites on Crown land outside of the provincial park system that is managed by
Recreation Sites and Trails BC in partnership with hundreds of community trail groups, First Nations and local governments.
Unfortunately, this cherished recreation system has been broken for quite some time now. Decades of chronic underfunding have left us with overburdened trail networks, recreation sites that have fallen into disrepair, cultural and environmental damage, a huge backlog of deferred maintenance, too few staff, and volunteer groups who are burnt out by the sheer volume of work and a lack of support.
Help us advocate for a much-needed budget increase to Recreation Sites and Trails BC so they are able to keep up with the continued growth in outdoor recreation.
