Castle riverThe Castle is a necessary link

As part of the Crown of the Continent ecosystem, the Castle Wilderness area is the south corridor of connectivity for species moving between the US, Alberta, BC, and the Yukon.

The Castle is vital habitat

There is an abundance of biodiversity in the Castle Wilderness and the unique ecosystem sustains many species of rare wildlife.

The Castle is a source of water

Watersheds throughout and beyond southern Alberta depend on the headwaters that begin in the Castle Wilderness.

As land use policies change, the CCWC will continue to promote the ongoing protection, restoration and maintenance of the Castle Wilderness as a viable and thriving wilderness.
