VANCOUVER - Environment Minister Mary Polak, Chilliwack MLA John Martin and BC Parks' mascot Jerry the Moose joined families and several outdoor organizations to celebrate Canada's Parks Day at a fun, family event at Cultus Lake Provincial Park today.

First celebrated in 1990, Parks Day is an annual event where thousands of people visit parks and historic sites across Canada to celebrate the important role parks play in creating and maintaining healthy and resilient ecosystems.

Connecting with nature and parks also contributes to improved overall human health and well-being, and is an important part of creating healthy, vibrant families and communities.

Events and activities have been planned all summer long to celebrate Mount Robson Provincial Park's 100th birthday. British Columbians are encouraged to stop by B.C.'s second-oldest provincial park for fun, family activities.

To learn more about British Columbia's parks system, pick up a free BC Parks Passport at any visitor centre in B.C. and most provincial parks. Collect six stamps at over 200 participating provincial parks to earn a collectible prize, and six stickers from a BC Visitor Centre to earn another treasure. Passports also include advice on trip-planning and BC Visitor Centre coupons.
