Strathcona Centennial Expedition
Throughout 2011, BC will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of its world renowned parks system. Historically it is the ascent of Crown Mountain on July 29th 1910, by the Strathcona Discovery Expedition, that can be pin-pointed as birth of BC Parks. To celebrate this landmark anniversary the Strathcona Park Public Advisory Committee and BC Parks sucessfully re-enacted the expedition following Price Ellison's footsteps from Campbell River through Strathcona Park to Port Alberni, including an ascent of Crown Mountain en route, in July and August 2010.
