Goals of the Strathcona Centennial Expedition

The Strathcona Centennial Expedition starts a year and a half of celebrations for BC Parks. It is the perfect way to honour the history, acknowledge the current state of affairs and prepare for the future. In that spirit the SCE has three main goals.

• To re-enact as marked by Proclamation of British Columbia's Lieutenant Governor, the 1910 Strathcona Discovery Expedition, retracing Price Ellison's footsteps through British Columbia's first Provincial Park in July-August 2010 thereby launching celebrations for BC Parks' 100th anniversary in 2011 Read more>

• To raise awareness of the amazing natural, historical and recreational opportunities of Strathcona Park to British Columbia residents, media and visitors. Read more>

• To establish a legacy fund on behalf of Strathcona Park for enhancing stewardship, building and maintaining infrastructure, land acquisition and environmental rehabilitation. Read more>
