Organising an event or group activity?
Our event season runs from 1 April – 30 November annually.
Many events are hosted in our forests each year including festivals, rogaining and orienteering competitions, horse endurance races, mountain bike races, sled dog races, commercial filming and photography, trail running events, military training, scout jamborees, outdoor education courses, school camps, and so much more.
Events such as these require organisers to submit an Event Application or activity registration form for approval by our Ranger team.
By registering your event or activity with us, we can make sure your visit is a safe and enjoyable one. Plus, our Rangers can give you tips on the best spots to visit and double check your plans will not be impacted by harvesting operations or other forest events.
Please note: Applications are generally not accepted between 1 December and 31 March due to the fire season. Only bike-related events at Fox Creek Bike Park will be considered during this time.
