JUNE 4, 2022


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
