Fifty-eight MWA volunteers compiled 2,217 hours of service on Montana’s public lands this season, improving 26 miles of trails that Montanans love to hike, bike, and ride.

“These lands are our heritage. These lands are our birthright. These lands are one of our great equalizers,” Gov. Bullock said.

Each year at Wild Fest, MWA honors several people for the work they’ve done championing wilderness, promoting quiet trails, and advocating for responsible management of public lands. We presented the 2016 Brass Lantern Awards to seven people this year.

Over the last few years, I’ve interviewed numerous wilderness champions, including environmentalists, government agency personnel, farmers, ranchers, politicians, outfitters, Native Americans, authors, artists, and ordinary citizens who simply love Montana’s outdoors.

Join us to learn about 2016 Wilderness Walks and CDT Montana trail projects.

This spring, MWA will be in your town (or near it) to share information about our 2016 Wilderness Walks and CDT Montana trail projects.
