Wish for Nature

Close your eyes and remember one special moment you have spent in nature.  How did you feel?

If you could make one wish that would protect more of BC’s nature and wildlife, what would your wish be?

Your wish will make an immediate difference:

  • For each wish you make, donors will give $10 to help create new parks and protected areas in BC for you to enjoy forever.
  • Your wish joins with other wishes to show that British Columbians support protecting 25% of BC by 2025.

Your wish is magic.  You will be filled with a sense of pride, awe and inspiration as the power of wishing together creates magical results for BC’s nature.

You can multiply your magic by sharing it with friends, families and others.

Every person you inspire to make a wish is another $10 you have helped contribute, and more goodwill for BC’s nature.


Inspire the next generation!

Submit your wishes online for a chance to win a field trip for your entire class. Right now, your school, class or club has a unique opportunity to contribute to protecting land in BC by simply making a wish for BC’s nature.

The BC Parks Foundation has a generous donor who will donate $10 to land protection in BC every time you make a wish for nature. That means by making one wish, you can directly impact the protection of BC’s nature. When you make a wish, you make a difference!

Submit your wishes online or in person at the Wishing Tree in English Bay, Vancouver and the tree will respond to each wish with beautiful changing light displays!

As a Discover Parks Ambassador working for the BC Parks Foundation, I spend my weekends in our beautiful BC Provincial Parks. I have always been an admirer of animals. I’ve had them as pets, obsessively read many encyclopedia entries about them, watched a plethora of documentaries, and recently have been photographing them. It’s great being outdoors and I get excited when I can point out local wildlife to interested visitors. Sandra Al-Samman (via)

45 youth have been employed to connect visitors to nature.

Nearly 1,000 vulnerable youth have spent more than 2,500 hours outside.
