Montana Wilderness Association 2018 Annual Gathering

Invitation from Montana Wilderness Association:

I wanted to send you a quick reminder that in just over two weeks (September 7-9), MWA members and supporters from across the state will be gathering in Livingston for our 2018 Annual Gathering, and I really hope that you’ll join us. This year is a pretty big deal – MWA is celebrating our 60th year of defending Montana’s wild places, and we wouldn’t have been able to make it this long without the dedication of people across the state.

So, the Annual Gathering will be part celebration of all that we’ve achieved, part thank you to the people who have made it possible, and part chance to get fired up to meet the challenges that we’re facing. There will be all sorts of free guided hikes on Friday and Saturday in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness and Crazy Mountains (including a wilderness survival skills course taught by our very own Backcountry Bob Ronan).

During the weekend, we’ll be joined by Montana Governor Steve Bullock, Director of the Governor’s Office of Outdoor Recreation Rachel VandeVoort, Yellowstone National Park Superintendent Dan Wenk, and longtime wilderness advocate Ed Norton Sr. You’ll also have a chance to win a guided wildlife viewing trip with Yellowstone Guidelines, check out a screening of Wild Resurrection: The Untold Story of the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness, eat great food, and dance to live music.

It’s important that you reserve your spot so we know how many people to plan for – the Saturday evening events are $20, and everything else is free. You can sign up by using this link, or give me a call at 406-443-7350 ext. 111.

I’m really looking forward to the weekend, and it’d mean a lot to see you there. Let’s make our next 60 years as succesful as our last 60!
