Fall in love with your regional parks.
Connecting people with nature and protecting wildlife has always been our goal.

Widgeon Marsh Cameras
Wildlife Cameras
๐Ÿ“Widgeon Marsh Regional Park

Through a $5,000 grant, Pacific Parklands Foundation has secured 8 new wildlife cameras to help Metro Vancouver Natural Resource Management staff better understand ecological drivers, seasonal and daily movement patterns, as well as coarse indexes of wildlife within Widgeon Marsh Regional Park.

While the photos below are from existing wildlife cameras in other regional parks, we look forward to seeing what is captured by the cameras we're funding in Widgeon Marsh Regional Park!

Every young person deserves the opportunity to attend summer camp, regardless of their circumstances. This is why Pacific Parklands Foundation partners with CTS Youth Society to deliver camping programs in four regional parks that are completely free for every participant

This year, CTS Youth made a video celebrating what they learned and thanking supporters like you for helping make this year their Best. Summer. Ever.
Tax-deductible donations to CTS Youth Programs today will help: 
  • Relaunch overnight camping programs post-pandemic
  • Equip youth with leadership and outdoor skills 
  • Fuel campers with free, healthy meals
  • Connect young people with nature and their community
  • Supply and train youth with the skills and equipment they need to explore the beauty of our Regional Parks and come home safe

Thank you for helping our youth and our parks grow together!
โ€œFall has always been my favourite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.โ€
