BCPARKS.CA BETA- A NEW DIGITAL EXPERIENCE OF BC PARKS

BC Parks is on a mission to ensure the visitor experience of parks – from trip planning, to booking a campsite, to contributing to conservation – is just as enjoyable, seamless, and impactful no matter whether you’re in a park, on your laptop, or on the road in between. To meet this goal, BC Parks is setting out to significantly and continuously improve the services provided to B.C.’s parks and the people who visit and value them.

This spring, BC Parks is presenting an overhauled set of online services, including a redesigned bcparks.ca and a renewed camping reservation service. People can engage on site feedback for bcparks.ca through the beta website at beta.bcparks.ca. Sign up for future research opportunities and keep an eye on the site for future content updates and direct usability testing.

The bcparks.ca website will continue to run alongside the new beta website, ensuring there is a consistent source of park information, while also allowing for more responsive and frequent updates to beta.bcparks.ca. A formal switchover date is not yet determined.

Learn more and get to know BC Parks through the stories, perspectives of volunteers, partners and staff on the BC Parks Blog page: https://engage.gov.bc.ca/bcparksblog/

Closed Engagements:


LAC DU BOIS GRASSLANDS PROTECTED AREA FIRE MANAGEMENT PLAN

BC Parks is developing a Fire Management Plan for Lac du Bois Grasslands Protected Area. The purpose of the Fire Management Plan is to action the long-term strategies and to build upon the management directions in the Lac du Bois Grasslands Protected Area draft Management Plan: Protect, manage and restore protected area vegetation for a diversity of plant species and communities and for its contribution to ecosystem representation, wildlife habitat, biodiversity and aesthetics, and inherent value.

The objectives of the Fire Management Plan are to provide an ecosystem-based framework for fire management within the protected area, and recommendations to reduce negative effects of wildfire to the protected area’s values, as well as values adjacent to the protected area. BC Parks appreciates that there is a high level of local interest, due in part to the proximity of the protected area to the City of Kamloops, the visibility of fire on the landscape, and the involvement of numerous partner and stakeholder groups in the area.

BC Parks would like to engage with park users, stakeholders, volunteer groups, and partners on opportunities for collaboration. This will help our team determine the level of interest and identify ways we can work together to further develop and implement the draft Fire Management Plan.
Feedback was accepted until June 19, 2022



BABINE MOUNTAINS PROVINCIAL PARK – TRAIL ENHANCEMENT PROJECT

BC Parks is anticipating receiving funding to improve facilities in Babine Mountains Provincial Park in 2022 and 2023. We want to ensure that investments will meet the needs of people in the surrounding communities. The trails are currently well loved by horse riders, hikers, naturalists, snowmobilers, trail runners and mountain bikers. We want to eliminate any potential favoritism towards one group over another and hear from park users if there are concerns with the trail network.
