Tree Down - Park Watch

Park User Awareness

Saturday, September 9, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Bebo Grove, Fish Creek Provincial Park, 13610 24 St SW

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

Park Watch Stewards provide a visible presence that encourages responsible park use while providing user education and the reporting of important observations via a new mobile Park Watch app 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.

The theme for this Park Watch Day is Recreational Rock Dams. The Friends and our community of volunteers will be at Bebo Grove to provide information to park users. In addition to hosting an information booth, we will be offering a free tour.
