This platform has been created as a permanent long term repository of all information concerning issues revolving around non-motorized access to our wilderness areas. We are also a repository of official government documents including master plans, park use permits, and development agreements as well as maps of key recreational area boundaries and trails. On this site, the province has been divided into 7 distinct geographic regions where these issues might occur. We welcome both clubs and invidiuals to join us in our advocacy work. As a completely transparent organization, everyone is welcome to view the contents of the site.

We consider hikers, rock climbers, mountaineers, trail runners, mountain bikers, kayakers, paddlers, backcountry skiers, and snowshoers among the groups that will directly benefit from the work being done here. At the core of our belief system is that the public has a right to access the wild areas of our province without encumberance by commercial operations or obstruction by government agencies. We are run entirely by volunteers. There is no central management here and there is also no anonymity. We provide a platform for everyone's voice to be heard and strive for truth and accuracy in what is stated.
Also note, that if you belong to an organization or government agency that there is an issue with and would like to respond directly, you are also welcome to set up an account. We only ask that you identify the organization / government body that you are affiliated with. For general members, your club affiliation can also be identified in this way.
This site includes all content formerly hosted on garibaldipark2020.com and all its issues are now managed here.
