Celebrate Mom and Mother Earth

Posted on April 30, 2019

Celebrate Mom and Mother Earth.

Inspired by spring, we've rounded up our pick of Mother's Day gifts that will make an impact. The best part? 100% of your purchase supports environmental education in our community.

Experience Nature as a Family

Spend time in nature with your family all year long with a FortWhyte Alive Family Membership. As members, your family will be able to explore the trails and connect with nature whenever you want to celebrate mom – and Mother Earth.

Place a Love Note in Nature

Place a love note on our Wetland Boardwalk Trail this Mother's Day. 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.

Mother's Day Brunch, Made Easy

Mother's Day brunch

Let us take the work out of Mother’s Day – we have a jam packed schedule for the whole family to enjoy together! Start your morning off with a beautiful brunch and a gentle stroll on our trails. Keep a lookout for goslings, ducklings and bison calves.

Gifts to Feel Good About

Visit the Nature Shop and stock up on gardening books, planters, and garden ornaments during our Mother’s Day Sale. As always, the Nature Shop takes care to source local, Canadian, handmade, and sustainable products so you can feel good about your purchases.
