About this project

In 2017-2018, the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS), Northern Alberta chapter is celebrating 50 years of promoting the protection of Alberta’s wilderness and parks!

For this occasion, and for Canada’s 150th birthday, we would like to pay tribute to our province and our country’s amazing natural heritage by collecting and sharing stories and photographs of exploration and adventure within wild spaces – the Stories of Our Wilderness.

We are looking for Albertans (and all Canadians) who want to share their stories or their ancestors’ stories about exploring and enjoying Alberta’s wilderness and parks. If you have a story to tell and photographs to share, we’d like to hear from you!

We hope to find stories and photographs that span 150 years so that we can celebrate 150 years of Canada’s iconic wilderness and the past 50 years of CPAWS’ conservation work in Alberta. Stories of Our Wilderness will inspire Albertans to look ahead together at the next 150 years of love for and exploration of Canada’s wilderness!

Stories of our Wilderness will be shared:

  • online at: cpawswilderness.org.
  • at many exciting community events in 2017
