The Friends of Fintry Provincial Park Society has been a registered non-profit society since 2000. The members want to see Dun-Waters’ legacy restored, protected – and shared with the public. There are over 200 Friends, mostly from the Okanagan Valley but some come from as far away as California and Scotland.
The Friends are involved in research, restoration of buildings and grounds, building the Fintry archives, work bees, fund raising, and recovering as many of Dun-Waters’ belongings as possible.
- Members are free
- Adults $5
- Youth are free
There’s also an “Adopt a Part of Dun-Waters’ Dream” program, where you can adopt a part of the garden, house, barn area, walking path or labyrinth for varying amounts. All donations and “adoptions” over $10 receive an income tax receipt.
Donations are always welcome and a great way to share “Dun-Waters Dream”. All donations go directly to the maintenance of the Fintry Estate and the Dun-Waters collection.
