This week in the Great Ranger Experience, Ranger Sara Bunge and Ranger Mark Weston want to share the spectacular ecosystems that are protected within the South Okanagan Grassland Provincial Park. The grassland ecosystem is one of the most rare and sensitive landscapes in British Columbia. Park rangers monitor the subtle changes within the ecosystem and endeavour to limit stress to the ecosystem by controlling recreation impacts and managing invasive weeds. BC Parks strives to maintain and protect healthy diverse ecosystems to ensure these special places will be here for generations to come.
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.
