The Friends of Killbear is a charitable organization that helps Killbear Provincial Park meet its objectives of protection, recreation, education and research.
The Friends of Killbear operate a souvenir shop at the Killbear Visitor Centre as well as collect donations and sell raffle tickets for prizes donated by local businesses. All proceeds go towards park projects such as; building boardwalks on trails, rattlesnake research and protection efforts, or summer concerts at the amphitheatre.
The Friends of Killbear are proud to sponsor the GBBR Water Festival, which takes place at Killbear every May. Killbear park naturalists work with GBBR staff and volunteers from Parry Sound High School to teach local grade five students about the importance of freshwater. Clean water in the biosphere is vital for habitat, recreation and jobs. This fun-filled day helps raise awareness of why we all need to be good stewards of this precious resource.
