Detailed Information:
The Strathcona Wilderness Institute embraces the goals of the Strathcona Park Master Plan to protect the natural beauty of the park while at the same time promoting public enjoyment and respect for integrity and completeness of the wilderness.

With more park land under government protection and fewer government funds available for services and facilities, it is increasingly necessary for park users to learn to assume responsibility for themselves and to take care of the natural environment by minimizing the impact of their presence.

The essential role of the Institute, in partnership with BC Parks and the Friends of Strathcona Park, is to serve as an interface between the Strathcona wilderness and the general public. As a registered non-profit society, the Institute intends to facilitate a co-operative effort to assure support for continuing education and park stewardship.
