Celebrating Thirty Years, 1992-2022

This year the Friends of Fish Creek are pleased to celebrate our 30th Anniversary! In 1992, a small group of community members recognized a need to help protect this area and began meeting with Park Management. That group formed the Friends of Fish Creek and in 1994 the Friends became a registered charity. Since that time, we have been dedicated to the protection and preservation of this park and have spearheaded volunteer programs and educational activities to engage community members and support park conservation. The Friends of Fish Creek are proud of our role as the link between you – the community member who cares for and visits the park – and park management. Stay tuned to our website for information about our exciting plans to celebrate our thirtieth year of bringing the park and community together!

Get to Know Fish Creek – Get to Know Rocks and Fossils

Saturday, April 23, 2022 | 1:00 to 3:00 pm

The Friends of Fish Creek invite you to our new Get to Know Fish Creek free community events starting this year. Get to Know Fish Creek events take place on the fourth Saturday of each month, where visitors can enjoy interactive exhibits, small-group walking tours, and fun activities centered on a theme, such as beavers, geology, and more. By collaborating with partners and volunteers, we have gained experience and know-how around creating safe and enjoyable events. We hope you and your family will join us on Saturday, April 23, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm for Get to Know Rocks and Fossils! Warm up by the campfire and listen to a story, learn about rock dams, try birding and other outdoor activities, learn about rocks and fossils, discover evidence of past volcanic activity, look for geological features in the park, find out how you can protect the park when you visit, and much more! For information on this and other Get to Know Fish Creek activities, visit https://friendsoffishcreek.org/programs/know.

The Fish Creek Community Terrace

Every brick tells a story, and we invite you to share your story with park visitors by dedicating a brick along the Fish Creek Community Terrace. You may have seen the 300 personalized bricks installed in front of the Cookhouse, commemorating milestones like weddings, anniversaries, new family members, or memorials for those who have passed on. If you did not get a chance to dedicate a brick along the pathway, or would like to dedicate another brick, now is the perfect opportunity to support the Friends of Fish Creek and share a little of your own story. If you have a local business, consider having a brick inscribed for your business – it’s great advertising in a very busy area! We are planning to install the bricks this summer and registration for this amazing program will close June 1. For more information, please contact the Friends of Fish Creek at 403-238-3841, ext. 1 or visit https://friendsoffishcreek.org/brick.
