BC Parks is now accepting applications for the 2014/15 Park Enhancement Fund!
The Park Enhancement Fund supports projects that engage the local volunteer community, to a maximum of $5,000 per project. There are two categories of projects, Visitor Experience and Recreation and Conservation.
Eligible project expenses include:
- Supplies, materials, signage, training and other business expenses.
- Financial contribution to a local group or Park Facility Operator who is organizing an event or initiative.
- Fees in support of community outreach (e.g. hosting a booth at a local tradeshow).
Funding must be spent within the 2014/15 fiscal year and a final report must be submitted online along with photographs of the project by March 31, 2015. ( http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/volunteers/resources/project-post.html )
