ReWidling Through Restoration Walk

ReWilding Through Restoration Walking Tours

Many areas within Fish Creek Provincial Park suffer from the intensity of human use; this is particularly the case along the banks of Fish Creek where human activity can contribute significantly to an overall decline in ecosystem health. Join the Friends of Fish Creek to learn about how this happens and how we work to engage the community at large to “ReWild” the park through hands-on stewardship work.

This walking tour will be mainly on flat, paved trails, with a walk of approximately 2km round trip.

Please remember to dress for the weather and wear good walking shoes in case the tour takes us on uneven ground. Sunscreen, water, bug spray, umbrella and a hat are also recommended so that you are ready for any kind of weather.

$5 per person. Register Through Eventbrite

Meet at the Friends of Fish Creek office (the Cookhouse) in the Bow Valley Ranch area of Fish Creek Provincial Park.

Tour guide Tobin Benedict has always had a very strong connection with nature. She grew up going camping, hiking, skiing and loved doing anything in the outdoors. In high school, she started to learn about the environmental degradation and exploitation facing the world, and this lead her to pursue her passion for nature through studying Environmental Science at the University of Calgary. She believes that conservation starts with learning how to respect and love yourself and then you will want to respect and love the planet you live on. This is Tobin’s first year as a Friends’ Tour Guide!
