CPAWS Southern Alberta Chapter
The Southern Alberta Chapter of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society’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. View our 2018-2023 Strategy.
Our Vision - The Alberta landscape has a growing abundance of parks, protected areas and wilderness, where nature thrives because of the conservation efforts of and for all Albertans.
- Nature, wilderness and wild places have intrinsic value;
- Nature thrives when ecosystems are healthy, functioning, resilient and diverse;
- Large landscape protection and connection is a natural solution to mitigate and adapt to climate change;
- Healthy ecosystems have a positive impact on human wellness;
- People are an integral part of the ecosystem;
- An informed and engaged citizenry is important to public debate and addressing conservation and wilderness issues; and
- Conservation solutions should be developed proactively.
