Sometimes holiday cheer pops up where you least expect it. Yesterday, it decided to make an appearance in Granite County.

For the third year in a row, MWA has been included on Outside Magazine’s list of the 100 best places to work.

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.
