Looking out towards wisps of green, yellow, and gold willow, we made our first sighting of the day – a heron perched on the root wad of a downed bog birch.

There’s a pleasant irony in the announcement: a small, Montana non-profit dedicated to protecting the “last best place” has been named one of America’s 100 best places to work.

Each year MWA honors several people for the work they’ve done championing wilderness, promoting quiet trails, and advocating for responsible management of public lands.
