Community Watershed Stewardship Project


Fish Creek Provincial Park provides a valuable recreational and natural resource that, with appropriate stewardship, will continue to serve Calgary families and support local real estate values far into the future. By leveraging skilled staff and volunteers to provide outreach activities, hands on stewardship and social enterprise a core of informed park users will be supported by a stable nonprofit society. Supportive actions and attitudes of our neighbours and sustainable use will ensure a vibrant healthy park to be enjoyed by future generations whilst adding value to surrounding properties.

Friends of Fish Creek Provincial Park Society

The Friends of Fish Creek Provincial Park Society was established in 1992 and incorporated as a non-profit charitable organization in 1993. In the late 1990s, the Friends moved into our current location in the Cookhouse at the Bow Valley Ranch. Today, we work with park management, over 200 volunteers, over 800 members, sponsors, donors, and community organizations to deliver programs, courses, and events in the park.
