South Chilcotin Mountains Park/Big Creek Park
Big Creek and South Chilcotin Mountains Provincial Parks will have one combined management plan due to having similar values, uses and adjacency.

Please keep this in mind when reviewing the document and providing any comments on Big Creek/South Chilcotin Mountains. The mining/tourism zones are shown on the map for South Chilcotin Mountains Provincial Park.
