What will be your summer adventure?

Wahoo, it's summer!!

Last week Lindsey shared her adventure plans for her family's 7-day trip on the Milk River (which you can still donate to here!). But what we really want to know is what does YOUR Adventure for Wilderness look like this summer? Challenge yourself to hike, bike or paddle a certain number of kilometres. Or it could be a trip that you have been planning for ages that you are excited about finally doing. Or something else that gets you out into Wild Alberta. Whatever it is, we want you to add it to this summer's Adventures for Wilderness! Create your adventure on our website and use it to raise funds for a cause we can all get behind -- protecting the wild places that sustain and renew us.

If you have questions, or an idea for the kind of adventure where you share your unique skills with others please contact our office at 403-283-2025 or

And don't forget about the adventures you can still join this weekend! Keep scrolling down for details and the links to register.

Happy Adventuring

Hiking White Rock Coulee

June 25, 2022 - With Heinz and Kris Unger. Join us on a unique opportunity to access and see a remote, rarely visited Provincial Natural Area, with beautiful rock formations. A trip to Medicine Hat in the spring, probably with an over night stay, is an extra bonus. The hike leads down one branch of the White Rock coulee, then along the South Saskatchewan River across from the Suffield National Wildlife Area and back up through a different coulee. We will return to the vehicles hiking across the prairie.

Coulee Hiking to Reveal Nature's Treasures

Tryst Lake Hiking Adventure

July 12, 2022 - With Chris Saunders. This is a one day hike to one of the most beautiful lakes in Alberta and a chance to learn about this magnificent wilderness area. The views are spectacular and the alpine flowers should be beautiful. It is also a chance learn about the geography and plant life of the area.
This is the rescheduling of the Rae Glacier hike, originally to be held at the end of October 2021, which had to be postponed on the account of weather. If you were registered on the October hike, you are automatically registered in this one. If you weren't but would like to come along, we have more spaces, so please sign up!

Mountain magic

Hiking into the Headwaters of Meadow Creek

August 17, 2022 - Join Heinz and Chris Unger for a day-long hike among the remote and a beautiful upper reach of Meadow Creek in the Ghost Wilderness area. These headwaters encompass an extensive set of wetlands with some new beaver dams. The views of nearby Black Rock Mountain and Devil’s Head are amazing

What is Adventures for Wilderness?

Adventures for Wilderness is AWA's annual program to engage Albertans in wilderness conservation. We believe an Adventure can be anything from climbing a mountain, to walking by the river, to enjoying the beauty of nature in your own backyard!
