BC Parks - Eli
BC Parks has been working closely with the community, Friends of Cortes Island, and local First Nations to protect and restore the sensitive coastal sands ecosystem at Mansons Landing Provincial Park. As part of this work BC Parks has been monitoring boat storage within the Park and recently we placed stickers on all boats stored within the Park as of October 17, 2022. Some of these boats have been identified as unseaworthy and these will be the focus of Phase 1 of our boat storage project. We want to remove these boats before winter storms create debris along the beach. If you store your boat at Mansons, we want to hear from you about your boat, how you use it and any thoughts or ideas you have about how to meet the community’s needs around boat storage at Mansons, while protecting the coastal sands ecosystem. Connecting boats to owners and a better understanding of how you use your boat in the park will help BC Parks work closely with the community, Friends of Cortes Island and First Nations to develop effective management strategies that meet your needs and protect the natural values in the park.

Please contact BC Parks at to identify your boat and discuss how you use it in the park.
