Learning and Working Together

With more than 250 volunteers province wide, we are dependent on the help everyone contributes. Below are some of the activities in which our volunteers are involved. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, learning about wilderness, and are willing to represent the AWA according to AWA guidelines, please complete our Volunteer Application Form. We will contact you as soon as possible. Your time volunteering contributes to the success of the Alberta Wilderness Association.
