Purpose and vision

The purpose of the Wells Gray Education and Research Centre is to facilitate academic and public education into the natural resources protected in Wells Gray Provincial Park and the lands that surround it.

By providing the facilities required by teachers and learners of all ages to spend various amounts of time in residence, the centre will promote a better understanding of how human activities affect the environment and the natural resources it holds.

Moreover, the centre will provide a location to support a better understanding of the place of nature in the indigenous worldview.


In order to achieve its purpose the the centre’s mission is to develop and sustain physical facilities (buildings as well as trails, etc.) that will allow individuals ready access to the natural environment (learning resources and courses) throughout the year.
