LETS CELEBRATE BC TRAILS DAY
JUNE 4, 2022
WHAT IS BC TRAILS DAY?
Part of the international celebration of Trails Day on the first Saturday of June each year, BC Trails Day celebrates and cares for our province’s stunning trail system, educates about responsible recreation and environmental stewardship, and helps British Columbians enjoy trails and outdoor spaces even more.
Who can organize a BC Trails Day event?
Anyone can organize a BC Trails Day event. We encourage outdoor groups and
communities to plan COVID-safe events all across the province. You may also consider
partnering up with other groups, organizations or businesses in your community to make
it a bigger event and to be able to reach a larger audience. Organizers are encouraged to
register their BC Trails Day event with the Outdoor Recreation Council of BC (ORCBC),
and in return, we will help you promote it and can also offer various resources. To get
added to the ORCBC’s email list, sign up here.

recreational opportunities, trail stewardship projects or virtual events.
