Great Beer and the Great Burn
Missoula's newest brewery hosts MWA event to help designate wilderness on Idaho side of the Great Burn
It is hard to deny that microbreweries are becoming a part of Montana’s landscape just as much as snowcapped mountains and roughshod cowboys. So it seemed natural this past Wednesday for MWA to host an event in support of its campaign to get the Idaho side of the Great Burn region designated as “recommended Wilderness” at Draught Works, Missoula’s newest brewery.
Lead the Way to Wilderness
We're looking for talented, passionate people (YOU!) to join our leadership team.
The State Council is a group of volunteers that leads the way for the Montana Wilderness Association. We're business owners, students, teachers, accountants, techies, and retirees. We're into hiking, camping, hunting, birding, fishing, riding horses, backpacking, photography, and a host of other outdoor endeavors. We love wilderness, and we work together to make sure the Montana Wilderness Association is the best possible organization it can be.
Solar Power = Wilderness Power
Reduced solar panel rates and donation to protect wilderness for MWA members
Today one of the greatest threats to our public lands is large-scale energy development. Whether oil fields or coal mines, the result is a vast network of roads, fragmented wildlife habitat, and the loss of our last remaining wild places.
When we turn to small scale, local energy production, that’s energy that doesn’t have to be drilled, mined, or excavated on our public lands.

MWA members embark on a wild business adventure along the Rocky Mountain Front

This past January, Yve Bardwell and Maggie Carr finalized the purchase of High Country Adventures, an outfitting business that has specialized in guided, foot-travel trips on the Rocky Mountain Front for over 30 years. The two young women have renamed the business Dropstone Outfitting, LLC. The proud new owners were kind enough to sit down this spring and answer a few questions about the business, the wilderness and their community.
