What was this engagement about?
Wells Gray Provincial Park is one of the province’s most unique landscapes and premiere outdoor recreation and tourism destinations. Over the past decade, visitation has grown, community expectations have evolved, the regional economy has changed, and tourism is now booming. In collaboration with First Nations, park users, stakeholders, and local and regional governments, BC Parks is developing a recreation strategy for Wells Gray Provincial Park to begin planning the future of recreation and tourism in the park.
How will my contribution make a difference?
Your input will help inform the Wells Gray Recreation Strategy. Developed to complement the Wells Gray Provincial Park Management Plan, the strategy will identify the actions that BC Parks, stakeholders and partners will take over the next 10 years to ensure exceptional year-round front country and backcountry visitor experiences. The strategy will also identify how visitor use will be managed to protect the park’s environmental and cultural values, and how the park will continue to contribute to strengthening the local and regional tourism economy. The Wells Gray Park Recreation Strategy 2020-2030 document will be posted on the BC Parks Wells Gray Park website in early May 2020.
