If you are paying for more than one person, please write the names of those accompanying you in the "Confirmation of Purchase" box.

    Wild Lands Advocate (1)

    The AWA’s premier publication, the Wild Lands Advocate, will keep you informed of Alberta's wilderness issues. This news journal highlights the AWA's work and inspires wilderness ethic. It makes a wonderful gift and educational resource of wildlands, wildwaters, and wildlife, in and around Alberta. Through investigative journalism and personal accounts, the Wild Lands Advocate tells the stories of Wild Alberta, the people involved in conservation initiatives and the challenges facing wilderness protection. Since its inaugural issue the journal has also functioned as an ongoing record of wilderness conservation issues in Alberta and of AWA’s work. Wild Lands Advocate is published in full colour bi-monthly, six times a year, by Alberta Wilderness Association. The journal contains no advertising. A digital version (in PDF) may be downloaded at
I love bears and the wildlands where they live. Bears have fascinated me, scared me ‘til my heart pounded, and inspired me… They have helped me to learn about the diversity of life on earth and how nature works.
