ReWilding, a Story of Fish Creek Restoration

Presented by Drew McKibbon, Friends of Fish Creek Tour Guide

Fish Creek Provincial Park is a rare gem set within one of the most populous and fastest growing cities in Canada, but its nature must be managed within the urban setting and protected from a crush of users. Join Friends of Fish Creek Tour Guide Drew McKibben for both an introduction and an update on one of the Friends’ current and most important objectives: the restoration and preservation of the creek’s ecosystem. ReWilding Through
Restoration is a long-term program reaching back to 2012, when the biological integrity of the riparian land one kilometer upstream from the Bow River was studied. Defined by the creek’s banks and active floodplains, that land was found to be threatened by recreational use and invasive plant species. ReWilding Through Restoration is preserving and restoring the creek’s riparian health by helping park users understand this important issue, and by cultivating native plants. ReWilding Through Restoration is as much about you as it is about the park.
