Park Watch Stewardship

The Friends’ Park Watch Program has been in existence since 2001, and since then, volunteer Stewards have actively taken on the role of helping to maintain a safe and beautiful enjoyable natural environment for park users of all kinds. 

Park Watch Stewards provide a visible presence that encourages responsible park use while providing user education and the reporting of important observations to Fish Creek Provincial Park staff and the Friends.  Providing assistance and information to park visitors, especially those who may be new to Fish Creek or the city, is one of the most rewarding ways to create awareness and encourage environmental stewardship.  Click here to view the Park Watch Steward Volunteer Job Description.

We are actively recruiting for Park Watch in 2019!  Please note that Stewards volunteer in teams of two; if you’d like to get involved, consider recruiting a family member or friend to join you (or we can pair you up with a new friend!).  First year Stewards are also required to obtain a current Police Information Check.
