Description:
Join Us for Virtual WildFest 2020!

Never been to MWA’s annual gathering? Here’s your chance! For the first time, members and supporters alike from across the state and nation can join us to celebrate the year’s accomplishments, honor our incredible volunteers, take part in an online silent auction, and learn about the important work protecting Montana’s wild places that lies ahead.

This year’s guest speaker is Kendall Edmo, who works with the Blackfeet Tribal Historic Preservation Office to document and preserve sacred Blackfeet sites. We hope you’ll join us!

WildFest is free, but you'll need to preregister at wildmontana.org/wildfest.

HAPPY HALF HOUR TO FOLLOW
Join us for an optional happy half hour following the gathering. Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy conversations with staff members and fellow wildlands supporters from the comfort of your couch.

WILL YOU BE OUR HUCKLEBERRY?
Thanks to the generosity and ingenuity of Helen Bolle, MWA has a 35-year tradition of auctioning off slices of a homemade huckleberry pie at this event. Huckleberries need wild country to grow and thrive – and we need your support to continue to advocate for wild country.

This year, we’re keeping this tradition alive while also giving more people the chance to participate! The first 100 people to donate $100 or more by October 25 will receive a huckleberry bear claw from the Polebridge Mercantile just outside of Glacier National Park. Don’t miss your chance for a truly sweet treat – these famous pastries are only available for purchase at the mercantile and community markets in northwest Montana, but we’ll send one right to your doorstep!
