Meet Our Alberta Parks Ambassadors – Kelsy N

Alberta Parks Ambassadors are united by a common passion for all things Alberta Parks and a desire to share their experiences. This spring, 130 people applied to take part in the Ambassador Program and from those applicants 13 were chosen to bring their adventures to life for everyone to enjoy and to inspire people to have their own Alberta Parks experience.

Through this 13 part blog series, we will introduce your Alberta Parks Ambassadors and share what they’ve been up to this summer.

Kelsy N


Kelsy Nielson loves exploring Alberta with her two young daughters and her husband Tim. Together they write a blog, Twirls and Travels, all about their weekend summer adventures.  They love exploring places they’ve never been – especially finding those hidden Alberta gems – and encourage other families to get out and do the same. Kelsy and family tend to spend as much time as possible in the water, whether it be a river, a creek or a lake.  Another favourite activity is spending time connecting around a campfire.
