Tuesday, December 3 is GivingTuesday!


As we look forward to kicking off the holiday shopping season by enjoying Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, the Friends of Fish Creek invite you to celebrate GivingTuesday! GivingTuesday is a global movement to encourage a spirit of philanthropy and giving back within our community. This year the Friends are focusing our GivingTuesday efforts on raising funds for reliable vehicle, such as a truck.

This year, we have developed a successful system for watering our restoration sites with the support of AEP staff, vehicles and equipment we now have a team of volunteers watering our restoration sites. Our next challenge is to secure our very own Friends of Fish Creek heavy-duty truck capable of transporting a full water tank, people and equipment necessary to continue the regular watering of our ReWilding sites.

Stewardship of Fish Creek Provincial Park is fundamental to the Friends of Fish Creek Provincial Park Society.  Getting a truck would significantly improve our ability to meet our Stewardship goals. Many of  our Watershed Stewardship Programs include Riparian Stewardship, Tree Wrapping, Park Clean Ups require the use of a vehicle as well as other tasks throughout the year. 

Our Goal is to raise $10,000 to purchase a truck. Special thanks to Starbucks in Deer Valley for their generous donation. We only need 84 community members to donate $100 each to reach our goal.
