Local Partners

Revelstoke Bear Aware Society

Revelstoke Bear Aware’s mission is to reduce human-bear conflict through education, cooperation and active management initiatives in the community of Revelstoke and surrounding area. Over the years, Parks Canada and Revelstoke Bear Aware have worked collaboratively on Bear Smart Initiatives such as the development of a Bear Hazard Assessment and Management Plan, Bear Hazard Maps and a Garbage Bear Map. Parks Canada and Revelstoke Bear Aware also worked together with School District #19 to supply bear-proof garbage cans for each elementary school. In addition, Parks Canada and Revelstoke Bear Aware developed a Google Earth Map, an interactive tool for users to view reported bear sightings and associated bear attractants, on the Revelstoke Bear Aware website. Parks Canada staff participate on the Revelstoke Bear Aware Society Committee to provide expertise and advice.

Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre

The Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre is managed by the Revelstoke Visual Arts Society as a not-for-profit community facility dedicated to the creation, exhibition and promotion of the visual arts. Together with the Friends of Mount Revelstoke the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre works with Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks on the Art in the Park program. This program provides visual artists with special access to explore one of Canada’s national parks and then to share the experience through art. Artwork is created to inspire an emotional connection and deeper understanding of Canada’s national parks.
