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.

Life on reservations is often fraught with poverty, alcoholism, drug-abuse, and depression, all of which stem from a painful recent history.

MWA volunteers Greg Schatz and Megan Schulze tie dogs Molly and Abby to a saddle after the dogs were found alone in the Bob Marshall.

It was mid-July, and a Montana Wilderness Association trail crew was on its sixth day of a ten-day trail project in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area when two cocker spaniels approached along the trail.
