Geocache Description:


























BC Parks is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. The first BC Park was Strathcona Park on Vancouver Island which was officially created on March 1, 1911.


Today, the parks system in British Columbia is one of our greatest resources. Currently 14.26% (13.5 million hectares) of British Columbia's land base is protected.
There are more than 340 campgrounds, 6000 km of hiking trails, 118 boat launches and 263 day-use areas in B.C.'s provincial park system.


BC Parks and the BC Geocaching Association are partnered along with the Year of Science to invite you to explore BC Parks.


This is one of 100 caches placed in parks throughout BC. Each cache will have a unique trackable geocoin available for the first 3 finders.
There are also BC Parks trade items, BC Geocaching Association buttons, and Year of Science pins.


There is a maximum of one coin per Geocaching account. Please trade fairly for all items in the cache. If you have a coin from another cache, please leave it for another cacher - you would want them to do the same for you.



This is a wilderness Park and would only be accessible by vehicle during the months of June through October. The cache is located in close proximity to the Parks Headquarters.

Elk Lakes Provincial Park

There are activities going on in BC Parks all year to celebrate this wonderful anniversary.


2011 is also the Year of Science in BC.
