Park Protectors Needed!

The Friends of Fish Creek invite you to become a Park Protector and help protect and preserve Fish Creek Provincial Park. As an alternative to annual membership renewals, the Park Protector program may suit your busy lifestyle a little better. A steady, reliable source of funding will enable the Friends to continue with ongoing field work, raising awareness about the park, and organizing and participating in community outreach activities. Park Protectors never have to worry about keeping donations or membership up to date and will receive one tax receipt a year. For more info visit www.friendsoffishcreek.org/park-protector-signup

ReWilding Through Restoration is a program that encourages the regeneration of natural ecosystems within Fish Creek Provincial Park, allowing current and future generations of Albertans to reconnect with, and wonder at, Alberta’s natural beauty.
