October in Fish Creek

Fish Creek

Volunteer Opportunity – Fish Creek Ambassadors Needed

If you have been down to Fish Creek Provincial Park you may have noticed that the Bow Valley Ranch Visitor Information Centre is now open to the public. The Friends of Fish Creek are facilitating Visitor Centre operations through the Fish Creek Ambassador program. This building is an amazing resource, and the Friends are excited to have a part in its daily operations. Since the beginning of July, hundreds of park visitors have come in to explore and learn something new about this truly amazing park. The Friends are in need of members of the Fish Creek Community to act as volunteer Fish Creek Ambassadors to help out in the centre. If you are looking for a fun and unique volunteer opportunity and would like to share your knowledge about Fish Creek Provincial Park, this opportunity may be for you. Join the Fish Creek Ambassador program to share your knowledge about the park and help park visitors make the most of their visit to Fish Creek Provincial Park. Shift times are only three hours in duration, the schedule is very flexible, and all training will be provided. Sign up online at https://friendsoffishcreek.org/fca and become a Fish Creek Ambassador today.

Show Your Love for Fish Creek – October 1 to 31, 2021

The Friends’ ‘I Love Fish Creek’ fundraiser provides an opportunity to show your love for a park that means so much to so many. As a non-profit organization, our annual fundraiser provides essential resources for us to continue engaging volunteers in purposeful work and facilitating meaningful community connections. It has been a challenging couple of years for our community and – perhaps more than ever before – people have found solace, space, recreation, and rejuvenation here in Fish Creek Provincial Park. New this year: the Friends are pleased to host a 50/50 online cash raffle! Purchase your tickets for a chance to win half of the jackpot – up to $5,000. What would you do with an extra $5,000?! You can also support Fish Creek by making a donation, bidding on silent auction items, or by sharing your Fish Creek experience. Whether you are a new or long-time supporter, we hope you will help us reach our goal of raising $15,000! By taking part in ‘I Love Fish Creek’, you will help to ensure that future generations can enjoy this park as much as we do today, and long into the future.
