Calgary Parks offers a wide-variety of environmental education programming, volunteer initiatives, and unique learning experiences to citizens of all ages. Provided opportunities promote ecological literacy by engaging citizens in the natural, historical, cultural and recreational elements of our parks and greenspaces. Additionally, they encourage natural stewardship and sustainable decision-making by increasing citizen knowledge and understanding of their impact on their natural surroundings and teaching the skills of civic responsibility. Their belief is that by evoking an emotional connection to the environment, citizens’ desires to performing sustainable acts becomes a learned behaviour and a component of their daily lives.
