At least 250 people flooded the county commission meeting. Roughly three-quarters of those who attended opposed Sen. Daines' WSA bill. 52 testified against the bill, 20 in favor. Moreover, 78 people sent the commission emails opposing the bill and another 45 signed a letter in opposition.

Calling all college students! MWA’s Flathead-Kootenai Chapter is looking for our very own Edward Abbey, Aldo Leopold, or John Muir to write about what our state’s public lands mean to them, and what they’re doing to protect and preserve Montana’s wild heritage.

In 2018, MWA is turning 60. We’ve seen a lot in our six decades leading the fight for Montana’s wild places, but we’re still feeling pretty spunky - maybe it has something to do with all the cake we just ate.
