Registrations are now open!

Please join us at the Calgary Tower on Saturday April 23, 2016 for solidarity, exercise, environmental protection and fun! as we look back on the Climb for Wilderness’ amazing 25 year legacy helping raise awareness and money for the defence of Alberta’s wilderness.

What a year it was!

The world was full of optimism; communism had just fallen in the Soviet Union along with apartheid in South Africa. In solidarity with 176 other countries at the Rio Summit in Brazil, Canada signed the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, intended to guide the world in future sustainable development.

The Perfect Storm — Unregulated Access in our Eastern Slopes

Tens of thousands of Albertans are calling for strict limits on off-highway vehicles (OHVs) along Alberta’s Eastern Slopes, and for a ban of OHVs in Alberta’s parks and protected areas. Poor management of the cumulative impacts of industrial development from oil &gas, forestry and mining along the east slopes has created the perfect storm of unregulated access from OHV users.

Music for the Wild: Fifty Shades of Blues and Blue Rambler

Feb 7 2016 - 2:30am

Headline Act

Fifty Shades of Blues. Glennis Houston & Andrea Petrity sing and play blues from the women divas of the 20’s and 30’s. Let them transport you back to the sultry clubs of New Orleans, Chicago, St. Louis and New York when powerful women laid down the foundation of blues, jazz and rock. Fifty Shades of Blues is a piano / vocal duo.

Opening Act

Blue Rambler. Don Gowan, George Campbell & Murray Little play blues-based songs that have strong stories and a solid groove. Their songs are well-aged or are played as if they are. Blue Rambler will get you singing a bit and tapping your feet. Expect to hear tinges of folk, jazz and old country as well as blues.

Music at 7:30pm, doors open at 7:00pm

Tickets: $20.00
