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.

We just got back from an amazing trip in the Willmore Wilderness Park! Teaming up with Curtis Hallock of Indian Trail Adventures, we rode up the Berland River to Adam's Creek camp, to Sunset Meadows, over Jackknife Pass to Zenda Creek and over to Big Graves. We were proud to support People & Peaks Productions, who were filming their latest documentary, "The Forgotten People". It focuses on sharing the stories of people from long ago, by honouring and restoring their graves in the Willmore.
