Parks Day & Creekfest
Free Fun for the Whole Family!

Saturday, July 15, 2017 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
Bow Valley Ranch, Fish Creek Provincial Park (South end of Bow Bottom Tr. SE)

Celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Canada and the 25th Anniversary of the Friends of Fish Creek, and learn about protecting our local waterways and breathtaking natural areas at Parks Day & Creekfest! There will be amazing performances by Juno-award winning Peter Puffin's Whale Tales, Alberta Parks Interpretive Theatre, and local musician Jennie Harluk, an interactive presentation by the Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society, a Yo-Qi Wellness based experience, guided walks relating to wetlands, beavers and the new Atco native grassland project lead by retired park planner and founding member of the Friends of Fish Creek Wayne Meikle.

Kids and families will also delight in hands-on activities and educational experiences hosted by community organizations dedicated to protecting Fish Creek and natural areas. Parks Day & Creekfest is a fun way for children and community members to learn about environmental conservation and for the Friends of Fish Creek to uphold our mission of engaging the community through education and awareness to conserve a truly unique naturalized urban park. Food will be available for purchase by Great Events Catering and there will be exciting draws for prizes designed to help people maximize their enjoyment of Fish Creek, a natural urban oasis we are fortunate to have within the city.
