Get to Know Nature with the Friends

With the support of volunteers and partners, the Friends of Fish Creek are pleased to announce new and FREE family-friendly outdoor events happening monthly in 2022!

Each Get to Know Nature event will feature interactive exhibits, small-group guided walks, campfires and fun activities all relating to a theme and will take place at a variety of Fish Creek Provincial Park day use areas. These events will provide opportunities for members of the public to connect with and learn about with nature while being active and having fun outdoors. Enjoy the park and learn how to protect natural spaces as a family or cohort! Each Get to Know Nature event is centered on a theme.
