Winter Wellness – Social Enterprise Programming

Home /  Winter Wellness – Social Enterprise Programming

The Friends of Fish Creek have been running successful education and stewardship programs in Fish Creek Provincial Park for over 25 years, and much of that success can be directly attributed to people in our community who have knowledge and training in a specific area and offer to lead programs on our behalf.  Professionals in areas such as yoga, meditation, and Spring Forest Qi Gong have been the backbone of our Wellness Program for years, and academics and researchers have supported the development of our educational tour program through writing and leading tours.  These programs would not be possible without such individuals.

Due to the unprecedented events that had shaped 2020, we wanted to provide extra support and wellness to our Friends of Fish Creek volunteers. Winter, and January in particular, is generally a time of hardship for many individuals. We hope that by working with you, we can show our appreciation to our wonderful volunteers and keep them connected during this difficult time!

We would love to hear your proposal for the new year and work with you to ensure your program is a success!  There are a few steps involved:

  • Step 1: Please review our Social Enterprise Contract for more details about the different ways you can be involved and the benefit associated with each. We are offering the Winter Wellness programs as a form of volunteer appreciation, therefore we will not be charging fees at this time. As a result, the contractor option of the Social Enterprise Contract will not be available for this event.  **Please make sure you complete this step before going on to Step 2.


  • Step 2: Complete our on-line Concept Review for Volunteer Winter Wellness form, which allows you to outline all aspects of your proposed program for our review. **Scroll down to Steps 3 & 4 once you have finished completing this form.
  • Step 3: Once we’ve reviewed your proposal, we’ll be in touch to discuss the details and work through any questions we have (either by phone or in person meeting).


  • Step 4: If we decide to move ahead with your program, we’ll ask you to complete, sign and submit the Social Enterprise Contract for our files.


Thank you for your interest in being an important part of our programming! We appreciate the support of people like yourself who generously offer their time and expertise so we can continue offering relevant, interesting and high-quality programming to the public and to our volunteers.

We look forward to receiving your proposal!
