Pinery Provincial Park is a rare ecosystem, and a refuge for many species at risk.
To ensure that they survive and thrive, the Friends of Pinery Park administers an active stewardship program. This work is supported by the federal Habitat Stewardship Program (HSP), the provincial Species at Risk Stewardship Program (SARSP), other grants (TD Friends of the Environment, Wright Foundation & Sunset Community Foundation), and funds raised by the Friends. Stewardship and Research Partnerships help us understand more about the Park’s plants and animals, and how best to support and protect them. Members of the Friends of Pinery Park have opportunities to support the stewardship program in a variety of ways.
Established in 1989, The Friends of Pinery Park is a registered charity dedicated to education, promotion, and preservation of Pinery Provincial Park. Over the years we have undertaken a variety of activities to protect the Park’s rare ecosystem and enhance the experience of visitors to the Park. Among them: research into species at risk, projects to stabilize the freshwater dunes, projects to make the Park’s natural beauty accessible to all, educational programs for children and youth, and much more.
