Celebrate Someone You Love with FortWhyte Alive

Posted on May 3, 2023

There are so many people in life worth celebrating.

The ones who lift you up when you’re feeling down and who are always on your side no matter what.

The ones you love who deserve to be celebrated every day for all that they do for you.

Here are a few ways you can celebrate someone you love with FortWhyte Alive.

Give time in Nature

Gift them a gift with endless benefits they can enjoy all year long.

When you give a FortWhyte Alive Membership you’re giving more than unlimited admission for a year, you’re giving exclusive discounts and promotions, invitations to members only events, early access to buy tickets to FortWhyte’s most popular events, complimentary rentals for fishing gear, snowshoes and more, all while supporting environmental education in your community.

Give a gift that gives that keeps giving

Honour the person who helps you embrace nature with a gift that helps others do the same. When you donate to the Your True Nature campaign, you create opportunities for people like you to learn about nature and make special memories with their own loved ones for generations to come.

All donations to the Your True Nature campaign will be acknowledged on a special digital display inside the new Buffalo Crossing building on McGillivray Blvd. And, with your gift of $1,000 or more you will also be recognized on the outdoor, life-sized, bison-shaped Legacy Wall. There are special opportunities to personalise your recognition further, with a gift of $2,500 or more.
