Big Lake Environment Support Society (BLESS) was formed in 1991. BLESS has been the official volunteer steward of the site since 2002.
BLESS has worked with Alberta Tourism, Parks & Recreation and other partners to construct and maintain facilities in the park.
BLESS provides educational programming at the little log cabin nature centre at the corner of St. Albert Trail and Sturgeon Road. The Society also co-ordinates the twice annual bird counts and the Migratory and Breeding Bird Survey
There are also volunteer opportunities in other provincial parks.
