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 focuses on research that preserves the history of opening of Canada; provides educational programs and services; provides health and wellness programs which focus on the culture and traditions of the Rockies; restores historical pack trails and sites, promotes tourism, 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.
