CANADIAN PARKS & WILDERNESS SOCIETY
Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) Southern Alberta’s mission is to safeguard, connect, and expand Alberta’s parks and wilderness. We work toward these goals through education, engagement, and collaboration with Albertans of all backgrounds. CPAWS Southern Alberta firmly believes that all kids can benefit from nature-based learning, but we also know that not all Alberta youth have equal access to it. That’s why a critical component of our work is breaking down barriers for traditionally excluded youth, including kids from rural, 2SLGBQIA+, BIPOC, New Canadian, and ability-diverse communities. All kids deserve the chance to experience outdoor education, and we are committed to ensuring that happens.
