Public Minibus Tours
A spin on the Friend’s open-air electric minibus is a wonderful way to enjoy the diversity and natural splendor of Fish Creek Provincial Park, and to learn from our volunteer tour guides about fascinating and often little-known facts about the area. These tours also allow people with reduced mobility an opportunity to enjoy and explore the park to a greater extent than they would otherwise be able to do. Proceeds from our Minibus Tours directly support our conservation and education initiatives.
Our 2017 tour season will begin in June, and planning is currently underway. Stay tuned for more details on dates and the types of tours available!
Here’s a look at what we offered in 2016:
History, nature and wetlands tours, hosted by Friends founding member, Alberta Parks staff and local historian extraordinaire, Wayne Meikle
“Unleash the Power of Your DSLR Camera”, guided by the creative and witty Bob Bakker
“Archaeology in the Park: Finding the Pioneers”, professionally interpreted by Drew McKibbon
Here is what people are saying about our Minibus Tours:
“Very, very great afternoon!”
“I loved driving through nature and hearing stories about the park.”
“Enthusiastic speaker, great information, fun bus ride!”
“We will be signing up for more tours!”
We would love to hear from you if you have an idea for a new tour topic or the expertise and interest in facilitating a Minibus Tour. Contact Shana Barbour, Program Coordinator, at 403-238-3841 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss becoming part of our Minibus Tour program.
