Moorecroft Regional Park

Moorecroft Regional Park was purchased by the RDN on March 2, 2011 from the BC Conference of the United Church of Canada for $4.8 million. The Nature Trust of BC fundraised $116,000 towards the purchase and $40,000 was raised locally by the Nanaimo & Area Land Trust. The property, formerly known as Camp Moorecroft, was first identified by the RDN in 1995 as a priority site for regional park acquisition due to its rare conservation and recreation values. The park is managed under a Conservation Covenant held by the Nature Conservancy of Canada, which requires ecological protection and enhancement as the highest priority and low impact recreational amenities within a natural setting.
