In 2002 a group of interested people decided to form the Willmore Wilderness Foundation. Their primary objective was to clear historic packtrails in the Park. Other objectives included preparing publications and providing educational programming. The Foundation’s goals have expanded and 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.
The Willmore Wilderness started offering programs and services to teach the traditions of the Rockies to those who wanted to learn. These included trapping, horsemanship and mountain skills clinics.
The Willmore Wilderness Foundation creates multimedia programs, films and social media content to share their unique culture, history and story with the world.
