A Brief History on How BC Marine Parks Forever Society started.

In 1989 B.C. Parks Department approached the Council of BC Yacht Clubs to set up a "charitable organization" to assist in protecting recreational boating interests and to raise funds for the purchase of BC Marine Parks. In 1990 B.C.Marine Parks Forever Society was formed. We are all un-paid volunteers without an office. We are also Council of BC Yacht Club members and we represent the recreational boaters in British Columbia.

We, as Marine Parks Forever Society and Council of BC Yacht Club members, are tirelessly working on the following projects:

  • Monitoring water lot use applications. For example, the Squirrel Cove development.
    • Assisting BC Parks in choosing and protecting a list of potential BC Boat Havens.
      • Raising funds to help add new BC marine parks.
        • Speaking to interested groups and offering a Power Point presentation.
          • Adding tie-backs and mooring buoys thus protecting the environment.
