Wellness in the Park

By developer

Relax and unwind in Fish Creek Provincial Park while you volunteer!

We are excited to continue offering outdoor yoga, Spring Forest Qi Gong, meditation and plein-air painting this year as part of our efforts to promote health and a connection to the outdoors through our Wellness Program. These sessions run between June and September.

As a Wellness Program Assistant, you will support the class instructors by managing participant sign in and payment, and connecting with the public about the different programs and events offered by the Friends.  Volunteers in this program receive the added benefit of being able to participate in some sessions at no cost. 

Wellness Assistants also have the opportunity to be involved in our newest program, Good Grief: Nature Walking Through Grief and Loss.  In this program, volunteers take on the role of Companions, walking alongside people who are moving through significant transitions in life and who can benefit from the healing that nature and this shared experience can bring. This weekly walking program will happen in May and June, with the possibility of extending into the summer and fall.

Recruitment for Wellness Programs is closed for 2018.  We encourage you to look for another suitable volunteer opportunity for this year.  Volunteer inquiries can be directed to Shana Barbour, Program Coordinator, at or to our office at 403-238-3841.  Or, simply click on the button below to create your volunteer account.  If you are interested in volunteering as a Wellness Program Instructor, please contact Shana directly.
