Remember before the Vancouver 2010 Olympics when you could pay extra to get special commemorative license plates for your car, and the money went towards the games? Today the Province and ICBC launched something even better: you can now buy BC license plates with images from our provincial parks on them, and the money you pay for them goes to the Parks Enhancement Fund. It’s all part of a thing called the BC Parks Future Strategy where the government is investing $22.9 million to build a couple thousand new campsites as well as starting something called the BC Parks Foundation with a $5 million endowment.
Pictured below are the 3 designs. The first features Porteau Cove on the Sea to Sky, the second a spirit bear and the third is of the Purcell mountains in Southeastern BC.
The plates will be available as of January 29th. Learn more about how to get them here.
