Legislation > Box 78 – Row 1 > Protecting wildlife habitat and ecosystems

Legislative amendments to the Protected Areas of British Columbia Act would add 352 hectares of land and foreshore to 10 provincial parks.

Land and/or foreshore will be added to: Naikoon Park, Blue River Black Spruce Park, Edge Hills Park, Valhalla Park, Okanagan Mountain park, Gladstone Park, Purcell Wilderness Conservancy Park, Christina Lake Park, Hole-in-the-Wall Park and Kootenay Lake Park. These additions increase protection for wildlife habitat, ecosystems, culturally significant areas and expand opportunities for recreation. Boundary modifications to correct administrative errors and address safety issues would also be made to two parks and two ecological reserves.
