The Mountaineer, a community newspaper in Rocky Mountain House, published a story in March 2018 that featured the Alberta Hiking Association’s position on a wildland park in the Bighorn Area. AHA chair Murray Fierhaller and AHA member Simon Dyer told reporter Shaelyn Poteet how the AHA is advocating for the formation of a wildland park in the Bighorn, and described the advantages this would provide for the Rocky Mountain House area.
