Protect the missing piece of the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy
Mount Willet and the Argenta Face
At the north end of Kootenay Lake, lies a unique, virtually intact wilderness mountainside, that reaches from lakeshore to mountain peaks. It is bordered on three sides by the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy Park (PWC).
Mt. Willet (2740m), the highest mountain on Kootenay Lake presides over this west facing slope, from Hamill Creek, (Argenta) in the north to Fry Creek, (Johnsons Landing) in the south.
In the forming of the PWC in 1974, and the subsequent boundary revision in 1995, this slope, known locally as “The Argenta-Johnsons Landing Face”, was not included.
