Tour Guides and Tour Assistants

The Friends of Fish Creek are excited to expand our existing suite of educational tours and are looking for volunteers with skills in public speaking, education and/or environmental science to act as Tour Guides in 2019.  As a Guide, you will have the opportunity to learn about and lead tours on various fascinating topics related to the Fish Creek watershed, including the history of the park, beaver ecology, archaeology in the Fish Creek area and native and invasive plants.  And possibly even ghosts!  Click here to view the Tour Guide Volunteer Job Description.

If you would rather stay out of the spotlight but would still like to help with our tour program, consider volunteering as a Tour Assistant!  Volunteers are needed to act in a support role to our Guides, taking on simple tasks like participant registration, drop-in payments and a bit of group management while on tours.  It’s a great way to help out, get some exercise and learn about the park at the same time!

Find out more about our Minibus and Walking Tours! programs.

We are actively recruiting for both Tour Assistant and Tour Guide positions in 2019!  To receive information about the training session for these opportunities, create a volunteer account on MyVolunteerPage by clicking on the green button below and check off either Tour Guide or Tour Assistant in your list of Program Interests.  Please note that both positions require volunteers to obtain a current Police Information Check.

If you are interested in developing and leading your own tour on a topic related to Fish Creek and that you are experinced in, please contact Shana Barbour, Program Coordinator, at shana@friendsoffishcreek.org or at 403-238-3841.
