Invitation to BC Parks Volunteer Strategy Workshop

Well I was invited to attend. I was asked because we are listed as a group that cleans up Davis lake.

Two ways to think about this:

1) they shut down Davis lake (again) and there is no point in attending
2) We should go to the meeting to see about other places FIBC can donate our time to clean up other "play grounds"

here is the E-mail request. What are you thoughts


As a valued contributor to BC Parks, I would like to invite you to help us develop a province-wide volunteer strategy at an upcoming regional workshop.

In 2011, BC Parks celebrated its 100th Anniversary, commemorating the establishment of Strathcona Provincial Park in 1911 and celebrating the creation of almost 1000 parks and protected areas since then. This successful celebration would not have been possible without the valuable contributions from volunteers across the province, more than 2500 volunteers participated!

To build on this success, BC Parks is developing a volunteer strategy to improve the volunteer experience for our existing and future volunteers. Our goal is to develop a strategy over the next few months and launch it in the upcoming summer season.

The workshops will provide you with an opportunity to:
  • Share the work you or your organization has done in support of BC Parks;
  • Contribute to a discussion about how BC Parks can improve the volunteer experience;
  • Provide input on future volunteer opportunities you would like to see; and,
  • Network with BC Parks staff and other volunteer groups.
Workshops will be held in February and March in nine locations across the province. You are welcome to attend the workshop location that best fits with your schedule and travel abilities.

Please RSVP to Erick Pay, Project Assistant ( based on RSVP dates listed below. You will receive a confirmation email with detailed workshop information no later than two weeks prior to the workshop. If you are unable to participate in any of the workshops, please submit written comments to by March 16, 2012.

If you have any questions about the volunteer strategy, please contact Becs Hoskins, BC Parks Project Manager (

Please join us at one of the following workshops:
Victoria - February 6, 9 am – 12 pm; RSVP by January 27
Prince George - February 10, 9 am -12 pm; RSVP by January 27
Smithers - February 13, 9 am -12 pm; RSVP by February 3

If you're able to I think you should definitely go Kevin. It's nice they are letting you know about it to keep you informaed about what's going on and giving you a chance to voice your opinion.
