For discussion: What do you think of the proposed vision for Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks, and Rogers Pass National Historic Site? Is there something missing? Does this reflect what you where you think the parks and sites should be in 15-20 years?
The untamed wilderness and soaring peaks of the Columbia Mountains have long challenged and inspired travellers. In Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks and Rogers Pass National Historic Site, the protected landscapes continue to fuel adventure, creativity and innovation. Indigenous communities, who are intimately connected to these lands, actively support and contribute to decision-making and park operations.
The parks sustain a thriving natural environment, protect cultural resources, feature exceptional visitor facilities and services, and exemplify environmental stewardship in the management of these special places. In the parks, across Canada, and around the world, the rich stories and local cultures, human perseverance and ingenuity, and the natural wonders of the Columbia Mountains, are accessible to all and inspire enduring support.
The birthplace of glaciology in North America, Glacier National Park is a hub for climate, avalanche, and natural science research, attracting academia, youth and others to explore and learn about issues of local and global significance.
The commemoration of travel and transportation in Rogers Pass National Historic Site, merges past, present and future to showcase the evolution and diversity of human connections to these mountains.
True to its roots, Mount Revelstoke National Park is closely connected to the community of Revelstoke. Using innovative technology, sustainable travel options and environmental design, visitors experience the park in ways that respect the wildlife and ecosystems.
Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks work together with partners and stakeholders across the region, to protect and restore the diverse Columbia Mountain ecosystems, guided by evidence-based decision making. The distinctive valley bottom wetlands, inland temperate rainforest and vibrant subalpine meadows support natural biodiversity. Our children and grandchildren have the opportunity to know wilderness and become stewards.
