Rewild Fish Creek Provincial Park!
Rewild: to return to a natural and wild state. Rewilding Fish Creek Provincial Park will encourage the regeneration of natural, wild ecosystems within our park, allowing current and future generations of Calgarians to reconnect with, and wonder at, Alberta’s natural beauty. Part of the rewilding process will be planting native streambank vegetation along the banks of Fish Creek. New trees and other vegetation will be planted to build riverside forests and habitat for wildlife, with the help of volunteers and donations. Together it will be possible to rewild and revitalize Fish Creek, and make the provincial park a true reflection of our native Alberta. For more information on how can support this project and rewild Fish Creek Provincial Park visit www.friendsoffishcreek.org/rewild
