The Legacy Ride & Raft Trip is an opportunity for lovers of The Bob and supporters of wilderness stewardship and conservation to see The Great Bear Wilderness on a trip of a lifetime.

This summer, in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Wild and Scenic River Act, the BMWF is offering "Ride & Raft 2018," a backcountry adventure along the Wilderness portion of the Middle Fork of the Flathead River.

This one-day trip into the Bob is the perfect way to celebrate the splendor of the landscape, the importance of Wilderness and free flowing, wild rivers, and to raise funds for the Bob Marshall Wilderness Endowment.

Ten seats are available and we hope to have commitments by Friday, June 22.
