Climb for Wilderness

April 22, 2017 - 2:30pm to 6:00pm

The Climb for Wilderness is a signature event. For the past 25 years, it has been held annually at the Calgary Tower – in 2017, it will be held at the iconic Bow Building! Our goal is to increase public awareness of wilderness, wildlife and wild water in Alberta. The Climb for Wilderness provides learning opportunities and the challenges to climb all 1188 stairs and raise funds for Alberta Wilderness Association. The event is known as the best Earth Day event in western Canada and attracts more than 1000 individual participants and 150 volunteers annually.

People of all ages, and athletic ability are welcome to participate. If you are aged 2 to 102, this is your Earth Day event!

There is no registration fee but every climber must meet the minimum fundraising amount to be eligible to climb. The amounts are $75 for age 16 and over and $40 for age 15 and under. We have tried hard to make this event financially accessible – for instance, get 4 friends to contribute $20, and you don’t have to pay a cent!
