About

Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks protect and present examples of the unique Columbia Mountains Natural Region, characterized by steep mountain terrain, glaciers and dense vegetation. The area’s precipitation supports the world’s only inland cedar-hemlock temperate rainforest, and in winter results in heavy snowfall and unique avalanche challenges.

In Mount Revelstoke, Glacier and Rogers Pass, nature and culture are intricately linked. From Indigenous peoples to early explorers and railway builders to motorists on the Trans-Canada Highway today, the most direct route from east to west led through the formidable Columbia Mountain ranges. The natural landscapes and terrain have sustained, inspired and challenged those who travel through.

    What needs to happen for the federal government to recognize the 10,000 year old rainforest that is threatened and unprotected south of Glacier National Park and extending to the Bugaboos and Goat Range Park? This area of the very little remaining ancient inland temperate rainforest is globally recognized as a significantly rare and highly biodiverse. BC people are crying out for the protection of the Selkirk Mountain Caribou Park proposal, which includes valuable habitat for the Central Selkirk herd of mountain caribou. What needs to happen to see this protected once and for all?

    FAQ: What is a management plan?

    over 1 year ago

    A management plan outlines the vision, key strategies, objectives and targets for a national park or national historic site:

    ·  To protect and present these special places, and foster public understanding, appreciation and enjoyment in ways that ensure the ecological and commemorative integrity of these places for present and future generations.

    ·  To guide operations and priorities over a 5 to 10 year time frame.

    It is the primary public accountability document for each national park.

    Current legislation requires that every management plan be reviewed a minimum of every ten years and any resulting amendments be tabled in Parliament.  The management planning process involves: assessing the current state of park resources; determining key trends, pressures and opportunities; and setting priorities. Management plans are drafted in collaboration and consultation with Indigenous peoples, stakeholders, and interested Canadians.
