Why We Exist
Located in Southwest Alberta’s Eastern Slopes foothills and mountains, Kananaskis Country covers over 4,200 square kilometres of some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. We connect people and to this spectacular 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 Kananasksis Country brings people together to ensure future generations have the same opportunities to enjoy this special part of Alberta.
We are committed to sharing this special place with the world through education, community engagement and volunteer participation. We are aligned with the Government of Alberta’s vision of engaging the public in participating in the long-term use and enjoyment of Kananaskis Country.
