Fist Bumps For All!

CDT Volunteer Appreciation Events

Afoot on the CDT

The Montana Wilderness Association wants to give you a solid fist bump!

We are celebrating the best year ever on the Continental Divide Trail thanks to hard-working volunteers like YOU. If you volunteered on a CDT Montana project this summer or are interested in learning more about our efforts on the divide then join us at one of the upcoming events. We can’t wait to see you there!


NOTE: Error for Great Falls event. Address for event is 4401 Flood Road not 1400. So sorry for any confusion! 

For each evening, MWA will be providing drinks, light appetizers, raffle prizes (bring a few bucks to buy tickets) and loads of fun. Check out specific details for each location below. Questions? Contact Shannon Freix, CDT Program Manager: 406.499.2309 cell phone, sfreix@wildmontana.org. 

BUTTE: At The Quarry Brewery, Wednesday 10/9 from 5:30-8pm. Food provided by Uptown Cafe. Mmmmmmm! Get there early if you want a taste and your first beer is on us! Mingle for an hour, get your raffle tickets and then we'll choose the winning raffle names around 7pm. Big thanks to InstyPrints of Butte for hooking us up with some great posters for the event. Backcountry Horsemen, bikers, hikers, runners, skiers....we know you're out ther and we want to see you there!

HELENA: Join us at the new MWA office in the Bluestone Building from 5:30-8pm on Thursday, 10/10. Food provided by Chili's O'Brien and Holiday Inn. We've seen the sample menu and you don't want to be late. We know there are a lot of Helena peeps that enjoy summer and winter on the divide. Get out and show your support. Raffle for great prizes around 7pm. We'll be hosting the party at our brand new MWA office -- the Bluestone Building near the fire tower (ya know the the building that looks a little "castley") . Come check out new digs! 

GREAT FALLS: Due to popular demand we are now expanding our post-season events to Great Falls. You guys know how to volunteer! We are getting more and more support from your great town. Let us say thank you! Join us on Friday 10/11 from 6-9pm at 4401 Flood Road (error on posters: accurate address is 4401 not 1400). This shin-dig is cowboy style...outside around a campfire. Be sure to wear a warm coat and hat (we hear it gets a little windy there). Don't worry we'll have a wall tent to warm up and for serving food, bonfire for toasting your marshallows and great company. A HUGE thank you to Mark and Sandy Himmel for hosting at their home. These guys are heros in disguise!
