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 historical research that preserves the history of the opening of Canada. The organization offers educational programs and services, provides community and youth development programs, as well as health and wellness programs which focus on the culture and traditions of the Rockies. The Foundation also promotes tourism, as well as restoring historical pack trails and sites that 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.
