Willmore Wilderness Preservation & Historical Foundation is a non-profit society registered under the Alberta Societies Act in 2002. The Foundation became a Registered Canadian Charitable Organization in 2003.
The Foundation focuses on historical research that preserves the history of the region. The organization offers educational instruction, community and youth development courses, as well as health and wellness programs. Willmore Wilderness Park provides wide-open spaces. When accessed with horses, or by hiking, can nurture a man’s spirit, leaving one with a feeling of connecting to the earth. The programs all promote “getting high on life.”
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, as well as being able to experience the sounds and beauty of the earth. The mountains give a feeling of being at one with nature. The Willmore Wilderness Foundation rehabilitates historical pack trails, historical gravesites and campsites that ensure access to the deep recesses of the Rockies. The Foundation also promotes regional tourism.
