Ben Gabriel at Organ Mountains National Monument

What excited our search committee the most about Ben were the leadership skills he demonstrated in his three-year tenure at FOMDP and the inspiring vision he articulated for MWA, which entails building on the tremendous success we’ve had over recent years.

Fifty-eight MWA volunteers compiled 2,217 hours of service on Montana’s public lands this season, improving 26 miles of trails that Montanans love to hike, bike, and ride.

This trail was no joke. From the moment we turned on to the other trail to the moment we reached Tranquil Basin there was not a single stretch of flat ground.

Perhaps it was the never-ending views that showcased the difference between the wilderness and civilization. Maybe it was the rainbow of colors found in the wildflowers or the inquisitive nature of the mountain goats.
