Welcome to the FLC Seniors Outdoor Club. Our club walks throughout the year; bird watching and snowshoeing are seasonal. We also have some special events.

CANCELATIONS: since we now only post our walk notices on this website, we ask in case of inclement weather that you check on this webpage on the Wednesday morning for cancellations.
We have 2 walking groups. Walks are mainly taken along the many pathways around Calgary and are selected for the scenery and interest they offer to seniors. Starting points vary and participants are expected to reach these points by their own arrangements. Join the group which best meets your needs. Both groups are welcoming and social.
The Leisure Walks are usually 5 - 6 km and 1½ hour long. We walk at a comfortable pace and socialize on the way. We cover many of the pathways in Fish Creek Provincial Park and some areas in the South of Calgary.
