While we couldn’t be together in person this year at our annual volunteer awards dinner, we enjoyed seeing your faces virtually at WildFest and chatting with those of you who joined us for our happy half hour following the event!

Happy trails, Gatch! Thanks for all you've done. (photo by Erin Clark)

We'll miss you, Gatch. Thanks for everything and see you on the trail. 

More than ever, your vote matters this election (photo by Dan Oldenburg)

This election is crucial for our public lands, and it's critical that every eligible voter casts a ballot.

In celebration of National Public Lands Day, we’re shining a light on the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDT).

The Terry Badlands span 44,000 acres just a few miles northwest of Terry in eastern Montana. The Bureau of Land Management has managed the land as a wilderness study area since the 1970s, which has helped the wild character of the land remain.

I'd rather be outside with my family than sitting in front of the computer, and giving to MWA ensures that my voice will be heard even while I'm enjoying our wild places.
