Minibus Nature and History Tour of Fish Creek Provincial Park

September 15, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

| $20

Monday, September 15th from 9am-11 am

Join the Friends of Fish Creek Provincial Park Society as we explore the nature and history of the park in the comfort of our new open-air electric minibus!

Fish Creek Provincial Park has a 10 000 year human history, with links to First Nations groups, the NorthWest Mounted Police, homesteading, trading and ranching.  At 3349 acres, it is one of the largest urban parks in North America, a mixture of grassland, wetlands, forest and riverine areas, abundant with deer, birds, owls, beaver and even the odd coyote…you never know what you’re going to see!

This tour is a wonderful opportunity for all ages, as well as for those with reduced or limited mobility who will be able to venture further into the park than they otherwise could!

Tour guide Wayne Meikle worked for Provincial Parks in Alberta for 35 years until he retired as a Urban Park Planner.  He worked especially in the area of urban park management and has been involved in operations, construction and planning of urban parks.  He is also one of the first founders of the Friends of Fish Creek Provincial Park Society.

Seating is limited, register today on Eventbrite!

$20 per person.  Meet in the Bow Valley Ranch parking lot in front of the red barn!

*Please note that, if you are in a wheelchair, access onto the minibus may be difficult, so please call us before you register to make sure this tour will work for you!
