Who is a Wilderness Guardian?

A Wilderness Guardian is passionate about protecting wilderness and wildlife and wants to ensure that passion and protection lives on generations from now.

Why not ask our staff? Our Donor Relations Manager, Michelle Johnson, is a Trailblazer and a proud Wilderness Guardian. She has left the better part of her estate to the Wilderness Committee and a few other charities who will carry on the activism she has dedicated her life to doing. Read her testimonial here.

You too can be a champion for Canada’s wild. Will you join her in being remembered as a Wilderness Guardian? 

Don’t take just our word for it, read long-time supporter Janice Palmer’s story here.

If you decide to join us, a few things to note:

  • Our legal name is the Western Canada Wilderness Committee (important to avoid confusion about your intention).
  • Your gift, your choice! If you have specifics in mind or a type of gift not listed here, please get in touch. We will work to meet your wishes and ensure that the Wilderness Committee is the right choice.
  • How will you use my funds? All funding goes to the area of greatest need, whether that’s a trip to spotted owl or caribou habitat to document logging or mining activities that will harm endangered species, or to keep the lights on at the office, both have equal importance. Any funding we receive in excess is put into a contingency fund monitored by our Board of Directors.
