June 2016 Wildlands Advocate article by Carolyn Campbell.

Carolyn Campbell next takes you hundreds of kilometres to the north to tell you about one of her memorable outdoor experiences as a member of AWA’s team – canoeing in McClelland Lake. Carolyn’s story is a bittersweet one. Many pleasures – such as camping by a rare sinkhole lake, exploring

It is my belief that Non-profit organizations like the Alberta Wilderness Association provide a clear framework that creates opportunities for Albertans to actively participate in the protection of their provinces resources.
