Sunday, July 24, 2016 @ 9:37 AM

Prince George, B.C. – Make sure you have a camera handy the next time you head to a BC Provincial park.BC Parks is looking for  beautiful ,  adventure inspiring ,  and  fun filled images  from  folks who visit  parks in this province.

Every week, the province will share a ‘BC Parks Fan Photo’ on its Instagram account. For your shot to be considered, simply tag BC Parks and use the hashtag #BCParks.

Be sure to follow along on Instagram, and the province’s other social media channels – Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and the BC Parks blog – for regular updates, and to see some of the pictures along the way.


Better yet, take a picture of a park conservation officer if you see one, apparently they are extremely rare, only seven in the whole province! ;-)


    We could just photoshop this one into a park picture. ;-)

What’s a Park Conservation Officer? Last time I checked we have, both Provincially & Federally, Park Rangers, which is quite different in scope of duties, responsibilities & powers than a provincial CO.
