We are so in love, aren’t we?
Crystal clear lakes; bright white quartzite peaks and the call of the loon while the summer sun sets…we are in love with the simple rugged beauty of a place that holds a special spot in all of our hearts…Killarney Provincial Park. More and more people are discovering what we have known for so long: Killarney Park is a magical place. And Friend, you make it so much more special. 
I am very excited to share that this year – Ontario Parks 125th Anniversary Killarney was the first provincial park to be designated a Dark Sky Preserve from the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada!  And, this designation was only possible because of capital investments made by the Friends of Killarney Park – Friends like you and me.
Because of ongoing support from the Friends, park visitors of all ages can:
  • experience a new, deeper appreciation for the Killarney night sky thanks to special dark sky lighting and a deck for the new, large telescope
  • glide across sparkling snow thanks to a brand-new trail groomer that maintains the many winter ski trails throughout the Park, AND
  • continue to take part in the many ongoing educational, recreational and creative programs offered for free.
Year after year, your donations, membership fees and gift shop purchases ensure that the Friends can successfully undertake projects vital to the protection and enjoyment of our beloved Park. And, there is more work ahead! Together, we plan to:
  • support an exciting new research project studying the hardiness of lake trout populations in the Park
  • provide staff and educational resources for the Park’s popular Natural Heritage Education program
  • replace ageing boardwalks and footbridges along trails and portages and purchase new privies for interior campsites to protect the rich bio-diversity of the Park, and
  • Install a new information kiosk at the Park’s main gate to help visitors get the full enjoyment of all Killarney has to offer.
On this Giving Tuesday, I’m writing to ask you to make a generous financial gift to support the powerful impact we make as Friends. It’s so easy! – just visit our donation page. If you prefer to make your donation by cheque, please make it payable to Friends of Killarney Park and mail to: Friends of Killarney Park, Killarney, Ontario, P0M 2A0.

These simple steps will go a long way to ensure we can deliver on our promise to be active partners in the environmental, educational and recreational activities of Killarney Provincial Park. From providing fun and informative programs to protecting this beautiful wild landscape, you and I will ensure that Killarney Provincial Park remains a magical place for generations to come.
Please consider a monthly gift, no amount is too small! I have been donating monthly for years and love knowing that my regular support helps the Friends AND the Park plan more effectively.
With appreciation for your kind consideration,
and I hope to see you in the Park for the annual Friends Winter Weekend, 
Susan Easton
President, Board of Directors
Friends of Killarney Park
