Get Involved

We are very proud of our achievements thus far, but we still need your help. With the monies collected from the Council of BC Yacht Clubs members, special bequests, and private donors like you we have helped with the purchase of the 8 marine parks and enhancements to 14 since our inception.

You can get involved with the BC Marine Parks Forever Society expand BC’s marine parks by helping us raise funds, leave a legacy, work with Parks to secure and support the addition to and enhancement of marine parks on the coast of BC, help your boating organization become a regular donor, or become a Director to help us chart our future.   Every little bit  of support helps us all enjoy our beautiful marine parks.
