BC Goes Wild Weekend

Third weekend of September, every year.


The third weekend of September is when we encourage the residents of BC to enjoy a BC Wild Weekend. Hike, paddle, bike, or take part in one of the many activities going on around the province. This is the weekend that WildSafeBC encourages people to safely enjoy wildlife in the wilds. It is our hope that by emphasizing the fact the wildlife should be in the wilds - and not in our urban areas, that people will help us meet our goal of "keeping wildlife wild and communities safe."
