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!

At least 250 people flooded the county commission meeting. Roughly three-quarters of those who attended opposed Sen. Daines' WSA bill. 52 testified against the bill, 20 in favor. Moreover, 78 people sent the commission emails opposing the bill and another 45 signed a letter in opposition.

Calling all college students! MWA’s Flathead-Kootenai Chapter is looking for our very own Edward Abbey, Aldo Leopold, or John Muir to write about what our state’s public lands mean to them, and what they’re doing to protect and preserve Montana’s wild heritage.
