Licence Plate-Funded Community Engagement Projects
The Community Engagement programming stream provides BC Parks with funding to connect British Columbians with provincial parks through programs and partnerships that support of public education, community outreach and engaging volunteers. As we work to weave BC Parks into the fabric of communities across BC, Licence Plate funds are supporting the development of exciting and interactive programs for everyone to enjoy. Projects in this stream focus on three main categories: education and interpretation, community events, accessibility and volunteers.
