What we're about

The Friends of Elk Island Society is a non-profit, charitable organization that co-operates with Parks Canada to promote understanding, appreciation and respect for Elk Island National Park.

We do not formally charge for membership of this Meetup group and our events are open to everyone. However, if you elect to pay for membership you will be supporting the aims of the Society and as a paid-up member you will be able to vote at our annual general meeting.

More information about the Society can be found in the Pages section of this group.
