The Montana Wilderness Association (MWA) is celebrating Montana’s wild places with free fun for the whole family on Saturday, September 12th at our own Fairmont Hot Springs, and ATS will be there!
This event is free and open to the public and there will be live music, hikes, activities, food, and recreation information from around the state. Last year’s Wildfest was held at Seeley Lake, and over 600 people came out to celebrate the wild.
MWA has asked ATS members to come and enjoy the festivities, and is also providing us the opportunity to share our work and local assets with the crowd. MWA is waiving ATS’ tabling fees, but is asking for volunteers for the event. Please consider volunteering, attending or both at this year’s Wildfest 2015, right in our own backyard.
