Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
Towering mountains, epic trails, sun-drenched lakes and sandy beaches – there are hundreds of parks in BC to explore. In 2011, BC Parks is celebrating its 100th anniversary.
From its golden grasslands to its jagged granite peaks, the parks of the Thompson Okanagan region offer everything from the quintessential summer-at-the-lake to challenging mountaineering terrain.
In this region, find: one of Canada's highest mountains, 50 dragonfly species, North America's largest paddle-only lake, the world-famous Adams River sockeye spawning run, volcanic caves and historic ruins. Walk, hike, cycle, kayak, canoe, run the rapids, ride a horse, or relax in a chair and count those dragonflies.
Wildlife in this region includes: black and grizzly bears, moose, caribou, mountain goats and sheep, cougars, lynx, bobcats, beavers, wolverines, timber wolves, mule and white-tailed deer, martens, minks, weasels, squirrels, as well as 182 bird species.
