Whether you’re an avid backpacker who wants to hit the trail with a new group, a life-long visitor to The Bob who wants to lend to its stewardship, or a first time camper who’s comforted by having a trip leader plan meals and watch out for your safety, BMWF's volunteer vacations are a great way to get outside and give back to Wilderness. 

There’s no more intimate way to explore the Wilderness of Montana than by helping to build and maintain trails here.  You can volunteer for as little as one day or a weekend, or you can spend a week backpacking in the Western Montana wilderness.  Families and children ages 12+ are welcome.

I got to foster my love of the outdoors, and was able to give back a little at the same time. Thanks so much for the chance to be part of something so big and wonderful, and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to do it all again next summer
