Wilderness needs you

We simply cannot take our wildlands for granted. When crucial decisions are on the table, the Montana Wilderness Association sends alerts to members and volunteers, and suggests effective ways to lead hearings, make phone calls, write letters, talk with your neighbors and elected officials, and more. Every small effort that you make protects Montana’s special wild places and enhances this important conservation work.
You have unique interests and talents, and MWA has innumerable ways you can contribute those talents in ways you find enjoyable. You can lead, follow, get your feet wet, pitch in on one project or make a lifetime commitment. Look on our volunteer page for examples: organize a hike, set up a database, start a local chapter, bake a treat, collect photos, teach a class, join the MWA State Council, attend a local chapter meeting, contact your congressional representative, help build a trail, or gather information on a landscape. Do you have other ideas? We’re eager to hear them!
