Metro Vancouver Regional Parks has finally approved and published their official geocaching policy. It basically mirrors the BC Parks geocaching policy and means that you, the geocachers of BC, will continue to enjoy yet another park system that doesn't require pre-approval of cache location or a permit to place a cache that meets or exceeds the criteria set out in the policy.
The BCGA has worked hard to foster a positive and productive relationship with Metro Vancouver through this year's numerous geocaching programs. This new policy is a testament to that, as well as to the quality of the current geocaches hidden in every Metro Vancouver Regional Park. For those of you that currently have caches hidden in a Metro Vancouver Regional Park, huge props to you for being responsible geocachers.
Please ensure that you've read and understand the policy as it is now in effect. We're currently in talks with Metro Vancouver to hold a meet 'n' greet style event with parks staff so that they can officially present the new policy to attendees. More to come on that when more information is available.
The policy can be found under the FAQs section of the Metro Vancouver website (under the Regional Parks subsection), located at www.metrovancouver.org.../faqs.aspx
