Thanks for celebrating Earth Day 2018 with us! You came out in the thousands to connect with nature, learn, and get inspired to take steps in honour of the earth. We enjoyed a great day in nature, all in the name of celebrating our planet. We'd like to extend a big FortWhyte Alive thank you to:
Finally, thanks to all of you that came out to take some time out to honour and appreciate this incredible planet. We love celebrating Earth Day, but imagine where we would be if, instead of celebrating our planet on just one day each year, we celebrated and took earth-friendly action every day of the year?
Whether you're the one responsible for booking your office's next holiday party or the manager who's looking to fire up your employees before tackling the next big project, you've come to just the right place. And, let's be honest, pleasing our co-workers can be tough. But, here at FortWhyte Alive, we've been doing this for a long time -- and we're confident that your team will leave here happy, whatever the occasion. We're also pretty confident that you'll get bonus points for thinking outside the box for your next workplace outing.
And, in case you didn't already know, FortWhyte is only 20 minutes from downtown.
Tired of regular ol' humdrum meetings? Book your next group huddle or small conference at Winnipeg's top destination for unparalleled lakefront meeting spaces. With pristine beauty and prairie history at our doorstep, count on FortWhyte Alive for a unique setting that enhances both creativity and productivity.
When you think of teambuilding, do you roll your eyes and picture a windowless conference room? If so, it's time to step into the wild with our out-of-the-box corporate retreat experiences. From the heart-pumping Amazing Chase to a serene yoga session, there's a unique outdoor experience waiting to re-energize your team like never before. Want to brainstorm in a boat? Launch a teammate into the air? Solve a life-sized puzzle? Just ask! And be sure to check out or Corporate Programs guide.
For planning an evening function, we've got the special touches that make your party pop! Impress your guests with glam cocktails and a sunset Bison Safari. Or go rustic chic with hatchet throwing and the three Bs: beer, bonfire, and BBQ. (Or is that four Bs?) Either way, with our help, your private event will be one for the books.
Have a family fun day they'll never forget! A photography scavenger hunt will have families in friendly competition and voyageur canoeing lets all ages try paddling without the stress of needing to steer. Cycle through a range of outdoor games and indoor crafts then cap it off with our bannock toppings bar for a bonfire like no other.
If your goal is to build rewarding fun and a sense of community into your day, what better way than volunteering together? We are thrilled to offer employer-supported volunteering for folks looking to give back while enjoying the great outdoors (or indoors, if that's your jam). These staff volunteer days are an amazing way to build rapport within your company and reputation within the broader community. All while helping us achieve our mission! It's truly win-win-win. The fresh air is on the house.

We have been talking a lot about waste this month and we would like to give a special shout-out to some waste reduction champions!
These schools stepped up to our challenge – they participated in the TD Trash Can Jam Challenge!
FortWhyte is passionate about waste reduction and we want to encourage youth, as the environmental stewards of the future, to be more aware of the daily impact that they have on the earth. The average student produces up to 30 kilograms of waste per year! We are proud of the students from the following schools for learning about waste and making a difference.
These students committed to ‘low-waste’ lunches while on their field trip at FortWhyte Alive this past winter. Each school was to fill no more than a 5-litre pail with disposable lunch garbage, while everything else in their lunches was to be reusable, recyclable, compostable, or eaten! These champion schools rose to the task and each student was rewarded for their efforts with a free pass to FortWhyte Alive.
A big thank you to the students from:
Congratulations to these schools for taking up the challenge this past winter and tackling their waste production head on!
FortWhyte Alive field trips are going to be waste free by 2020! The Trash Can Jam is a great start, but we want to have all schools on board to help us reduce waste. If you are a teacher looking to bring your classroom, why not get involved while you can still win prizes?! Visit this page for more details about the program.
While this is a fun and important way for classrooms to reduce waste while on their field trip to FortWhyte, it would be even better if we could all cut down on the amount of trash we create each and every day. Let's all take the Trash Can Jam Challenge, shall we?
Step 1: Pre-register for the challenge by contacting the School Bookings office by phone: 204-989-8355 ext. 206, or by email at email@example.com.
Step 2: Complete the challenge! All disposable lunch garbage produced by your group must fit into the provided 5-litre pail (per 30 students).
Visit this page for more details about the rules, as well as resources to help you complete the challenge.
Don't forget to use the hashtag #TDTrashCanJam to boast your student's waste reduction success at both FortWhyte Alive, and in the classroom!
