Community Legacy Program

Post by Access Society of BC » Mon May 30, 2011 8:55 pm

We are soliciting ideas for the program announced below. The Access Society is a Charity and can apply for the funding, however we can't possibly know of every improvement needed in this vast province, you as a member can help by sending us your ideas. Please be specific and send us your contact info if more information is required.
> As part of BC Parks’ centenary celebrations, we are proud to announce the Community Legacy Program. This new initiative offers opportunities for registered not-for-profit societies, charities, First Nations Governments, Bands or Tribal Councils, local governments, schools, School Districts and post secondary institutions to apply for project funding of up to $20,000 to carry out improvements and enhancements to BC Parks in 2011.
> Projects may include educational facilities and signs, trail building and enhancements, infrastructure to support recreational activities, conservation and restoration projects, and upgrades that make Parks more accessible to a variety of users.
> This program provides a unique opportunity for British Columbians to share in the stewardship of BC Parks, and to leave a lasting legacy in our cherished parks and protected areas. BC Parks is looking forward to a variety of exciting community projects taking place in parks and protected areas across the province.

This looks like a great opportunity to make some concrete improvements to trails and facilities at Stawamus Chief park or Murrin.

Folks should know the deadline for applications is June 16th so get your ideas in to CASBC soon, they need to time to write up the application. Here is the link to the Community Legacy Program.

I'll throw a couple of ideas out there:
At Murrin:
- How about trail improvements to the climbs at Up Among the Firs ?

For the Chief campground:
- What about adding more tent pads at the Chief Campground?
- Cook shelter near the parking lot?
- showers even?

Anybody have thoughts on these ideas or some of their own?
