Parks Day & Creekfest 2018: Celebrating Healthy Watersheds and Provincial Parks!

Parks Day & Creekfest is an opportunity for the Friends of Fish Creek and Alberta Environment and Parks to work together to offer a joint, family-oriented and fun filled event that engages park visitors with various educational offerings about the Fish Creek watershed and Provincial Parks in Alberta.

This year, Parks Day & Creekfest will be held on Saturday, July 21st from 12-4pm at the Bow Valley Ranch.

We are actively recruiting for Parks Day & Creekfest volunteers! Events like these take many hands to bring them to life, and a variety of volunteer opportunities will once again be available.  More event details and information will be announced later this year, but if you’d like to know more, please contact Katie at

Youth Nature Programs

Friends of Fish Creek Youth Nature Programs allow youth groups to learn about and connect with the natural world.  These interactive educational programs take place at various locations throughout the park and foster understanding and appreciation for local ecology in our youth. Click here to learn more about the Youth Nature Programs we offer.

Volunteer responsibilities include greeting each group, helping to present the program with staff and/or fellow volunteers and ensuring group safety.  Police Information and Vulnerable Sector Checks are required for first year volunteers in this program (volunteer letter provided for discounted rate).

Recruitment for Youth Nature Program volunteers is closed for 2018.  We encourage you to look for another suitable volunteer opportunity for this year.  Please contact Katie Bakken, Program Coordinator, at or at 403-238-3841.
