GRPF Membership Drive has begun!

We are excited to announce that our 2019 GRPF memberships are now available. By buying a membership to Glenbow Ranch Park Foundation, you are showing your love for this unique Provincial Park and supporting the work that our Foundation does.

This year, one lucky 2019 member will win a gift basket filled with gift certificates, vouchers and great items from our incredible Perk Partners. Basket items include two day bike rentals from Bow Cycle, essential oil and creams from Grand Avenue Pharmacy, gift certificates from Ski Cellar and Mona Lisa Artist’s Materials and so many more.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page where we will be unveiling more basket items throughout the month of November. Individual Memberships are $35 and Family Memberships are $50.

You can purchase your membership online, or come by the Visitor Information Center when it is open and purchase it from us. We will also be at the Cochrane Safeway the weekend of November 24-25 where you will get a chance to purchase a membership, make a general donation and meet one of our amazing volunteers. Join the herd and purchase your membership today!
