Program Details

We expect volunteers to come ready to pitch in and become part of our extended, world wide family. We work hard towards a shared goal of helping the earth and the beings that reside with her. Our Evolution to Excellence will be helped by your participation. We share our Wildhorse and Wildland Wisdom with you to enable you to view the world with fresh insights.
Alberta is know for its "western events", from May to October there are usually many local events, rodeo's, festivals etc that you could visit on the weekend. Banff and Jasper have world renown places to visits and in July there is a 10 day Calgary Stampede that is a terrific place to go have fun! Locally we have a few lakes that are great for people watching and some "cold water swimming". The Rocky Mountains are 60 miles west of us and they have lots of beautiful trails, views and vistas to make your heart sing.
