Volunteers are the heart of Friends of Kananaskis Country. They are a driving force behind many of our programs and activities. Our successful trail stewardship initiatives and many of the special events we organize or participate in are possible because individuals donate their time and energy.
Trail Stewardship Volunteering
If you feel a special connection to nature and wish to see future generations enjoy the wild beauty of Kananaskis Country, why not consider volunteering with FKC? You’ll get out in nature, visit the parks and wild spaces of Kananaskis Country, meet new people, and make a difference to Alberta’s natural landscape.
If you’d like to volunteer on our trail projects, the first step is to set up your volunteer profile. Once you’ve created your profile, you’ll be added to our What’s Happening email list that will outline upcoming volunteer opportunities. Here’s a bit more info on what trail care days are like.
Crew Leader Volunteering
If you’ve got a few trail care days under your belt, consider becoming a trail care Crew Leader. You’ll assist Parks in supervising Friends volunteers. We’ll train you (for free) on trail building and maintenance techniques, volunteer management, Parks procedures and first aid. Interested? Just contact us.
