Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA) is the oldest wilderness conservation group in Alberta dedicated to the completion of a protected areas network and the conservation of wilderness throughout the province. Founded in 1965 in rural southwest Alberta by backcountry enthusiasts, ranchers and outfitters, the AWA has grown into a province wide organization. It has a provincial office and resource centre in Calgary and active members and volunteers throughout Alberta. Under the AWA volunteer stewardship program, trail maintenance involves keeping the trail accessible and clear for hikers and equestrian trail users. Adopted trails are the 125-km historic Bighorn Trail which begins on the Bighorn River, and the Great Divide Trail in cooperation with the Great Divide Trail Association.
