Alberta Wilderness Association
About This Organization
Alberta Wilderness Association is the oldest wilderness conservation group in Alberta dedicated to the completion of a protected areas network and the conservation of wilderness throughout the province. Founded in 1965 in rural southwest Alberta by backcountry enthusiasts, ranchers and outfitters, AWA has grown into a provincial organization. With five decades of success, we are known for our tenacity, corporate memory and integrity. We work for wildlife and the habitat they depend on, for wilderness and wild water and a healthy environment for all.
