News from the Friends of Killarney Park

We've been Friends for 30 years!

2016 marks the 30th anniversary of Friends of Killarney Park (FOKP). For the past 30 years, we have been working in cooperation with Ontario Parks to keep Killarney Provincial Park wild for the benefit of future generations. We thank you for your continued support and dedication and look forward to celebrating with you over the coming seasons. Stay tuned for more details! 
30th FACT: To safeguard the natural environment and ensure a safe recreational experience in the Park, we've replaced over two kilometres of boardwalks and built five foot bridges over the past 30 years. Learn more about the history of the Friends.

Celebrating the 11th annual Winter Weekend

Despite recording-breaking temperatures, more than 60 Friends braved the cold and joined us for our 11th annual Winter Weekend on February 13 and 14. On Saturday, participants were treated to a clear night sky for stargazing from the Park's observatory. On Sunday, after a delicious BBQ lunch and lots of hot chocolate, participants joined guided hikes led by FOKP's Kris Puhvel and Ontario Park's Dave Ward. Later, at the Killarney Bay Inn, it was a full house for photographer Ethan Meleg's inspiring presentation about nature photography followed by a special Valentine's Day dinner with the Friends. 
30th FACT: FOKP's first Winter Weekend took place in February 2005. Thanks to everyone for joining us over the last 11 years!
