There is an established array of scientific, social and economic reasons why the mid-elevation Mount Elphinstone slopes should be considered for protection under BC’s Protected Areas Strategy.

Presently three separate parcels of forests, totalling 139 hectares, make up Mt. Elphinstone Park. The SCCA believes it is time to move forward and create a contiguous mid-elevation park on the western slopes of the mountain. This important subzone is critically under-represented locally, regionally and provincially in BC’s protected areas system.

If you support the Mount Elphinstone Park proposal, please write to the Minister of Environment: Honourable Terry Lake, PO BOX 9047 STN PROV GOVT VICTORIA BC V8W 9E2 or email env.minister@gov.bc.ca.
