The theme of this year’s contest was “People and Public Lands.” In an effort to highlight the connection that Montanans feel to our public lands and waters, we asked participants to submit photos that featured friends, family, or themselves enjoying everything our public lands have to offer.

Before 2019 comes to an end and we enter a new decade, we'd like to highlight the year's successes and thank our supporters for helping us ensure the protection of Montana's wild public lands.

It’s that time of year when we look back at the year’s accomplishments, take stock of our successes, and honor all the volunteers who power our work protecting Montana’s wild public lands.
