The BC Park’s Discover Parks Ambassador Program is back and ambassadors will be available at Alice Lake, Shannon Falls, and Stawamus Chief in the summer to connect with park visitors through education and positive interactions.
In a press release, BC Parks said the Province has the sixth largest park system in the world and the Ambassadors are hard at work trying to protect it. The Ambassadors interact with park visitors to promote nature appreciation, safe outdoor recreation, and responsible park use. The team also helps foster connections with nature for those who are new to parks.
Last year’s Ambassadors also led Jerry’s Rangers programming for kids and families, including handing out the famous antlers which some parents will remember from their own childhood experiences in BC Parks. Some 2022 summer highlights include 62,816 interactions with visitors, 18,253 program participants, and 5,027 iNaturalist biodiversity observations.
Here is a list of all the locations where you can find ambassadors in 2023 between early June and late August.
