In the final episode of the Great Ranger Experience, Ranger Katy Chambers and Ranger Andy Turner want to share their Garibaldi Provincial Park experience with you. The spectacular mountain and glacier landscapes of Garibaldi were protected as one of British Columbia's first Provincial Parks in 1927. The almost 200,000 hectare park offers more than 90km of world-class hiking in the summer and fall, and exceptional ski touring opportunities throughout the winter and spring. B.C.'s park rangers keep busy by maintaining recreational opportunities while ensuring the natural features and dynamic ecosystems are protected.
As BC Parks turns 100 years old, Park Rangers want to share their experience of working as stewards of BC’s wonderful parks. These short videos capture spectacular landscapes, and showcase a little bit of what our Park Rangers are up to throughout the Province. Featured Park Rangers share what is special about their favourite provincial parks, and most importantly, share why they are passionate about being a ranger! There are four videos in total, we’ll share one per week.
