Valhalla Mile Added to Valhalla Provincial Park

Success! The Valhalla Foundation for Ecology and Social Justice, The Land Conservancy of BC (TLC) and BC Parks joined forces to raise $1.5 million to purchase a 155-acre parcel of private land along Slocan Lake, surrounded by Valhalla Park. The land was threatened with development for a resort or private summer homes. Thanks to a huge outpouring of public support and donations from across Canada and internationally, the Valhalla Mile was successfully purchased and transferred to BC Parks in April of 2009, to become part of Valhalla Provincial Park. Celebration events are planned in Silverton, BC, on July 1. Click below for more information.

(All celebration events are privately funded.)
