The Access & Environment (A&E) Committee values finding ways for ACC Calgary Section members to reduce the environmental impact of their mountain recreation. The ACC Calgary Section has partnered with Savick Inc., an Alberta-based small business that provides GHG quantification services. Savick will determine the carbon footprint of our club by calculating the carbon emissions generated by Board functions and social activities, as well as section-organized camps/reviews. The Calgary Section will purchase carbon credits annually to offset the impact of the club’s activities. Through Savick, we are also providing the ability for members to offset their personal carbon emissions created by their mountain recreation when booking ACC Calgary Section courses and trips. Come to learn about this project and what changes are coming as a result to our club,

The Wolverine Research Project - Y2Y
A wolverine specialist from Yellowstone to Yukon (Y2Y) Conservation Initiative will be sharing information from 20 years of research on wolverines. This will include how interesting these animals are (habitat/ behavior) as well as challenges they are facing (recreation, heli hiking, skiing, etc). There is also an opportunity for us as a club to learn how to be involved in sharing sightings and other data which can help with this research.

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non- recoverable costs).
The Calgary Section of the Alpine Club of Canada is a not for profit / flow through course and trip provider. We organize courses and trips based on member demand and divide any costs that we incur between event attendees. In other words, we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
