Story Trails is an initiative to develop an interactive trail network in BC’s parks that leverages technology to tell the stories of our parks in a way that creates powerful lifelong learning, healthier lifestyles, cultural connections and stewards for the future.
Our first Story Trail opened in June 2019 in Tsútswecw Provincial Park, in the traditional territory of the Secwepemc people. It is an interpretive trail that tells the story of the native plants and landscape features in the area through the voices of students from Chase Secondary School's Secwépemctsin language class. Since then, Story Trails have also been activated in Alice Lake, Big Bar and Ancient Forest parks. Want to see more? Check out our page on How to Help Build a Story Trail.
If you have too many quotes from other people in your head, you can't create. You have to keep your head empty. That's why I am constantly enjoying the sky, the park, the walk.”
