LEAVE A LEGACY OF LOVE FOR KANANASKIS COUNTRY
Some of our best adventures and memories happen in Kananaskis Country – exploring the trails, deep forests, towering peaks and clear mountain streams. It is a place where we can all connect with the natural world.
As people who love Kananaskis Country’s outdoors, we have the power to help ensure it’s open spaces, safe trails, and wide mountain vistas are accessible today, tomorrow, and beyond.
The Friends of Kananaskis Country Legacy Fund, administered by the Calgary Foundation, was established to provide support for the Friend’s mission: building a community of volunteers and partners to maintain the ecological integrity and recreational use of Kananaskis Country by engaging in trail care, stewardship, education, and research.
The purpose of the Legacy Fund is to be used where most needed in support of trail stewardship, communications and education. Whether it’s responding to flood damage or taking advantage of a new opportunity to expand our trail network, the Friends of Kananaskis Country Legacy Fund will allow us to respond where most needed when high-priority needs and opportunities arise.
You can make a lasting impact on our trails and wildlands by making a gift to the Friends of Kananaskis Country Legacy Fund. As with annual contributions, every gift the Friends of Kananaskis Country receives, regardless of the size, furthers our cause and strengthens the organization.
