2022 Trail Season Recap

We're happy to report on another successful year from FKC, which included some expansions to our program scope - we acquired 4 e-bikes and packable tool kits which enabled our 'backcountry crew' volunteers to access projects beyond our usual 5km limit, we made great progress on the new Cloudline and Iliad trail builds, offered a number of trail sessions in the winter months, and expanded our program to the Elbow-Sheep Wildland Provincial Park. We extend our deepest thanks to you, the volunteers, who enable the success of our programs. Trail Stewardship is at the core of everything we do, and we couldn’t do it without you.

You can also see our 2022 highlights and accomplishments in our full 2022 Trail Report.

We strive to offer volunteering opportunities in all of our projects to enhance community involvement with our organization and to foster a powerful, broad-based public connection with Kananaskis Country.

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.

Vision: A Kananaskis Country of exquisite natural and cultural landscapes enjoyed by present and future generations.

Mandate: Connecting people and place in a meaningful way. We develop opportunities and programs for individuals and groups to experience Kananaskis Country through engagement and sharing. We raise money to support relevant, practical initiatives that not only benefit the people involved, but benefit the ecology and ecosystems of Kananaskis Country. The Friends of Kananaskis Country brings people together to ensure future generations have the same opportunities to enjoy this special part of Alberta.
