Willmore Wilderness Foundation

Willmore Wilderness Preservation & Historical Foundation is a non-profit society registered under the Alberta Societies Act in 2002. The Foundation became a Registered Charitable Organization in 2003.

The Foundation preserves the history of the area; focuses on the advancement of education of the park; restores historical pack trails and sites; promotes tourism and economic development, and enhances the use of Willmore Wilderness Park for Albertans and visitors alike.

Willmore Wilderness Park has a unique horseback culture, traditions and history that date back to the Canadian Fur Trade. Travelling the old pack trails allows one to be independent and free to stop and make their home in a camp; free to experience the sounds and beauty of the earth. The mountains give many the feeling of being at one with nature.

Willmore Wilderness Park offers wide-open spaces, and when accessed with horses or by hiking can nurture a man’s spirit, leaving one with a feeling of connecting to the earth.

Thank You Helpers!!

The Willmore Wilderness Foundation would like to send out a huge thankyou to the helping hands that assisted our crews in getting on and off the trail this summer. A special thank you to Brandy Gienger and her helpers. They helped us pack up on our Berland River Trip to restore gravesides. There is a great deal of time and planning involved in the pack up prior to the trip- and the unload when the trip is complete. Thank you all for the extra help!!
