Give a gift with meaning

Posted on October 8, 2019

Place a love note on our Wetland Boardwalk Trail, a meaningful gift perfect for graduation, weddings, and other milestone celebrations.

Family walking across boardwalk

Your personalized plaque will be placed along one of FortWhyte’s best known and most loved trails, a floating pathway through a lively wetland ecosystem that boasts a diversity of flora and fauna. The trail is the ideal spot to stroll — or to simply pause, relax and reflect.

Boardwalk plaques are a long-time favourite gift for:

  • Celebrating milestones
    Make a gift in honour of someone celebrating a special occasion like graduation, anniversary or milestone birthday.
  • Weddings
    Leaving a love note in nature is a great way to celebrate and make a charitable gift in honour of the happy couple — especially those that get married here at FortWhyte!
  • In memory
    Make a gift in memory of a loved one who was in touch with nature.

Proceeds from your gift are directly invested in the landscape that makes FortWhyte Alive a magical place for people like you and your family.

Boardwalk plaques are stainless steel, measure 5” x 2” and allow up to three lines for your personalized message. At $125 each, you will receive a $90 tax receipt and a complimentary family day pass so that you may come to visit your special part of this beautiful trail.

Purchase your boardwalk plaque here.
