Have you registered yet? There are less than two months until Climb Day and we have some great updates for you.
In March, our goal is to have 150 new registrations and we have an incentive or two if you haven’t registered already. By climbing, you help AWA push for greater protection of wilderness and wildlife in Alberta.
You will get great fundraising prizes this year. One prize, the top adult fundraiser gets Brooks running shoes from Gord’s Running Store! Check back often for new prizes being released.
Did You Know?
Greater Sage-Grouse are an impressive bird native to Alberta’s grasslands. In the spring they meet up on “leks” where the males dance to impress females as well as challenge rival males.
Check out this video to see and more importantly hear these incredible dancers.
However, the grasslands they live on are threatened and we want to be sure they have a place to dance. Sage-Grouse are endangered. We have chosen the Sage-Grouse to be our featured wildlife for this year’s Climb for Wilderness. Your support throughout the years has always been vital for AWA’s work. When you climb this year, you help to ensure Sage-Grouse have a place to dance.
As a thanks for your support we are doing weekly giveaways of AWA merch for those who register in March! Register soon to be included in this week’s draw for an AWA baseball cap on March 8th at noon.
Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on giveaways.
