We are a non-profit organization that advocates for promoting the conservation, research, education and recreation of and in Elk Island National Park, Alberta. We are active and dedicated volunteers that plan and part take in a number of activities throughout the year in and for Elk Island National Park.
Elk Island National Park is only a 45 minute drive east of Edmonton, Alberta and draws nature lovers from Edmonton and surrounding area, and all over the world. We invite you to join us in the love, appreciation and advocacy for Elk Island National Park that we have had for over 30 years. The FEIS raises funds through membership, events and donations to further the objectives and goals of the Society, that ultimately benefit and support appreciation for the Park.
Please be aware that participating in Friends of Elk Island Society events (e.g. hikes, citizen science, etc.) may entail strenuous physical activity, encounters with potentially dangerous wildlife, exposure to biting insects, and inclement weather. Please prepare accordingly.
Support conservation and become a member (or renew your membership)! Please see our membership page!
