Get out and explore Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks!

Here is an email I received from the Wilderness Committee to share

Hi Eldy,

I am very proud to present our newest  publication, Welcome  to Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks, co-produced with members of the  Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation (pronounced klaw-oh-kwee-awt)  in Clayoquot Sound on Canada’s Pacific coast.

Balancing conservation and sustainable  human activity is the key challenge in iconic areas like Clayoquot Sound, and  we believe Tribal Parks are an exciting part of the solution!

With the declaration of two new Tribal  Parks this year, there are now four Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks, encompassing  the entire Tla-o-qui-aht traditional territory!

This newsletter outlines the history of  Tribal Parks, how they differ from traditional protected areas, and how Tribal  Parks management aims to use traditional teachings and laws in the context of modern  land and resource management.

Low-impact, sustainable tourism has been  highlighted as a major priority for economic development within Tribal Parks,  and this is where you come in! This newsletter will provide you with all the  information you need to get out and enjoy the incredible and unique  opportunities available within Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks.

Just outside Tofino, walk the legendary  Big Tree Trail in Wah-nah-jus – Hilth-hoo-is(Meares Island) Tribal Park. On the way out to the coast, stop in for an  exhilarating zipline tour in Ha’uukmin  Tribal Park (Kennedy Lake Watershed) These are just a few of the ways you  can experience Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks and support sustainable First Nations  economic activity in Clayoquot Sound.

So what are you waiting for? Head west –  way west – to where the Pacific Ocean and the coastal temperate rainforest come  together in an explosion of life, where proud Indigenous culture thrives, and  where your adventure awaits!

See you on the trail,
