More than 60 Montanans rallied Helena to send a message to Congressman Steve Daines, Representative Greg Gianforte, and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke: stop depriving the public of a say in the management of our public lands.

We're serious about addressing the challenges of wildfire and doing our part to find solutions. That's we’ve been playing a growing role in wildfire recovery by focusing on trail restoration.
