Donate to keep Alberta wild.

Your donation to CPAWS Southern Alberta is an investment, one that actively protects the wildlife and wilderness areas we all cherish, now and for future generations.

Donate Today!

We spend over 70 percent of each dollar on conservation and education, and it all makes an impact!

Donations allowed us to participate in the Grassy Mountain hearing to stop open-pit coal mining in Alberta, to print signs for our wildly popular Defend Alberta Parks campaign, to host educational events, to spread awareness, and much more.

With your support, we can protect your wild backyard, maintain a diverse and resilient landscape, and ensure our land and waters promote the mental and physical health of all Albertans. We can’t do this without your help!

Hear from some of our fantastic supporters and why they choose to support our cause!

  • “We are passionate about getting people outdoors to enjoy our pristine wilderness and to keep it, well pristine. For us, that means getting people off the resort chairlifts and into backcountry skiing and getting them off the paved paths in the cities and onto mountain trails. As a business, being responsible for the resources under our care is important to us. Not only as a business but as people who enjoy the wilderness. CPAWS is aligned with our personal values of doing as little harm as possible, being stewards of the resources provided to us, and leaving the world better than we found it. From choosing no VOC paint, to recycling and repurposing shoes for a discount off a new pair, to choosing 100% green energy, it’s these things that matter deeply to preserving and protecting our natural places. We love CPAWS and the work that they do and are proud to have them as our 1% for the Planet charity, donating 1% of our revenue to them. We’ll see you on the trails! #wearetrailrunning”
