River Access Education Project

With funding from Alberta Conservation Association

Calgary River Valleys is partnering with the City of Calgary on a river access education project.  We gratefully acknowledge the generous grant from Alberta Conservation Association which helped fund this project.  This project involves several components:

  • information signage boards on the shore at river access & egress points to provide safety tips, historical information, current advisories, river protection information, details on boat usage & approximate float times, and acceptable user behaviour,
  • on-river directional signage to indicate the distance to and location of the next egress point,
  • a river map posted online (and possibly also in brochure form), and an update to the Calgary Parks & Pathways map which will include river access sites,
  • river information to be posted on the City of Calgary’s website regarding access & egress sites, estimated float times, safety information, and advice for how to protect the river environment.

The river information is already posted on the City of Calgary’s website, and will be updated going forward by the City.  The final wording & design of the shore information boards has been prepared and will be installed in major river access spots in August. This project has been a great partnership for us with the City of Calgary, and has had input from multiple stakeholders to ensure the excellent information is delivered to Calgarians and tourists alike.


 Calgary River Valleys (CRV) is an independent, not-for-profit, volunteer-led organization, dedicated to building a strong and effective voice for river valleys protection and water quality in Calgary.

Our principal purpose is to “champion and engage the public in the protection, appreciation and stewardship of Calgary’s rivers, creeks, wetlands and watershed resources.”
