11:00 am – 4:00 pm
Bow Valley Ranch, Fish Creek Provincial Park
Alberta Parks and the Friends of Fish Creek are pleased to present Parks Day & Creekfest! Parks Day & Creekfest will be returning to the Bow Valley Ranch (south end of Bow Bottom Tr SE) and is a fun and amazing way to learn about protecting this province’s breathtaking natural areas!
“It’s always great to experience the fun learning opportunities available for families attending this annual event,” said Jason Kang, Friends of Fish Creek volunteer, “There’s a lot to choose from – whether it’s live performances, games, interactive displays, or guided nature walks. It’s an amazing event that gets people thinking about our natural environment while having a fun summer afternoon in the park!”
There will be amazing performances by Juno-award winning Peter Puffin’s Whale Tales, Alberta Parks Interpretive Theatre, and local musician Jennie Harluk, an interactive presentation by the Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society, a Yo-Qi Wellness based experience, guided walks relating to wetlands, beavers and the new Atco native grassland project lead by retired park planner and founding member of the Friends of Fish Creek Wayne Meikle.
Kids and families will also delight in hands-on activities and educational experiences hosted by community organizations dedicated to protecting Fish Creek and natural areas. Parks Day & Creekfest is a fun way for children and community members to learn about environmental conservation and for the Friends of Fish Creek to uphold our mission of engaging the community through education and awareness to conserve a truly unique naturalized urban park. Food will be available for purchase by Great Events Catering and there will be exciting draws for prizes designed to help people maximize their enjoyment of Fish Creek, a natural urban oasis we are fortunate to have within the city.
