Wild Life - On the Trail

In celebration of Public Lands Day, we want to thank all the amazing volunteers who continually blow us away with their dedication and hard work (photo by Matt Bowser)

In celebration of National Public Lands Day, we’re shining a light on the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDT).

We’d normally be out on the trail with 150 volunteers this summer. And while we’re hoping we can still get out with volunteers for the second half of the season, we had to cancel our first several projects. Instead, our two-person staff crew is out doing as much work as they can.

Curious about what really goes on during an MWA volunteer trail crew project? A lot of hard work, a lot of fun, and a whole lot of eating.

Although we all came from different walks of life, it was amazing to witness how quickly we came together.

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.

Every season on the Montana portion of the CDT brings another year of success, not just in terms of building the trail, but also in building a community around a mission that gives back to the wildlands we use and love.
