Fund the Future for Outdoor Education in Alberta

by Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society

CPAWS Southern Alberta is celebrating 25 years of inspiring students, seniors, faith groups, New Canadians and communities across our province through outdoor education. Since 1997, our programs have reached over 165,000 Albertans and we’re excited to see what the next quarter century has in store – but we need your help.

Help Us Raise $25,000 for the Next 25 years!

Our education programs are rooted in an ethic of environmental stewardship. So, whether it’s curriculum-based programs in the classroom, hands-on learning through guided hikes up Yamnuska Mountain, snowshoe tours in Kananaskis Country or water sampling at Fish Creek Provincial Park, we want to help participants from all walks of life learn about the gifts that nature has to offer – and how we can give back.

And while our team firmly believes everyone can benefit from nature-based learning, we also know that not all Albertans have equal access to it. That’s why a critical component of our work is breaking down barriers for traditionally excluded communities, including rural schools, 2SLGBQIA+ youth, BIPOC folks, new Canadians and ability-diverse individuals. Everyone deserves the opportunity to experience outdoor education, and we are committed to ensuring that happens.

Keep Growing with Us

CPAWS Southern Alberta is a chapter of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, a registered charity founded in 1963. Our education team delivers programming across Southern Alberta for reduced and subsidized rates, or for free. We believe that outdoor learning, environmental literacy and science-based education have the power to change our world for the better – and when we understand the value of Southern Alberta’s wild spaces and species, we act to protect them.

Help us fund a future for outdoor education in Southern Alberta – and, in doing so, a future for our province’s parks, wilderness and wildlife!
