Event description

Description

Fish Creek Provincial Park is a rich cultural, historical and ecological resource that boasts many stories from the past that have long since been forgotten. Join us in a leisurely stroll through the Marshall Springs area to hear about what the park used to look like and how it has changed over time. From beaver dams to park trails that are no longer used to exploring areas with vegetation that are unique to this part of the park, you will come away with a greater appreciation and understanding as to the need to conserve and protect this special place.

Please note that while this tour may take you off the beaten path, so to speak, we ask that in your regular park use you stay on designated trails to prevent damage to sensitive and natural areas; if you are taken OFF these designated trails for this tour, please note that this is only for the purposes of this educational opportunity.

Please remember to dress for the weather and wear good walking shoes in case the tour takes us on uneven groung. Sunscreen, water, bug spray, umbrella and a hat are also recommended so that you are ready for any kind of weather.
