BC Parks is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year while it is also the 100th anniversary of Parks Canada in 2011. Although Banff National Park is 125 years old, Parks Canada was officially established in 1911 and was the first national park service in the world. In BC, we have 7 National Parks.
Glacier National Park
Yoho National Park of Canada
Kootenay National Park of Canada
Mount Revelstoke National Park of Canada
Pacific Rim National Park Reserve of Canada
Gulf Islands National Park Reserve of Canada
Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site
You can find out more about Canada’s National Parks this weekend (until March 6, 2011) at the BC Home and Garden Show. There you can visit the Canada Pavilion at the Convention Centre to learn more, and even do some trip planning for the warmer months.
