2015 Spring Into Summer Events

Join Us in Your Town

Afoot on the CDT

Spring Into Summer with Montana Wilderness Association

This spring, MWA will be in your town (or near it) to share information about our 2015 Wilderness Walks and CDT Montana trail projects. We have more than 150 FREE hikes and adventures to choose form this year. Meet other outdoor enthusiasts and check out our summer line-up, all while sipping a tasty Montana beverage and supporting our wild, open spaces. 

Plus, buy a raffle ticket at our event for the chance to win a flight into the Bob Marshall Wilderness at Schafer Meadows. If you’re the lucky winner, you’ll receive one chartered flight into The Bob with departure from Kalispell City Airport. This is a one-way route, dropping you off at historic Schafer Meadows--the only airstrip in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, grand-fathered in with the 1964 Wilderness Act.

You have the option to fly in and hike out, or fly in and purchase your own return flight out (additional cost). The flight is limited to a maximum of 5 people or 900 lbs. (mix & match weight for people and gear). Raffle tickets cost $20 for one or $50 for three and are only sold onsite at our MWA spring events. See you there!
