Helena, MT—April 2, 2018 —  On Monday, April 16, the Blackfoot River Brewing Company, a passionate craft beer brewery that is committed to ensuring that public lands and the Wilderness is cared for and accessible to all, will host the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation for a Community Monday fundraiser.

The BMWF is a grassroots organization that formed in Montana over twenty years ago. It provides volunteer stewardship for Montana’s 1.5 million acre Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex, the crown jewel of the Wilderness system.

BRBC will donate $1 from every beer sold and all the proceeds from Community Monday (2-8 pm) will go to direct program services to bring over 350 volunteers into The Bob this summer. Here, they will work to keep trails open, manage invasive weeds, protect wildlife habitat, and offer wilderness immersions with the power to change lives and instill a land ethic.

BMWF staff will be present at the brewery from 5-8 to help you find your volunteer adventure for Field Season 2018. A wide variety of volunteer adventures in the Wilderness are available, ranging from three- to nine-day trips in beautiful places in the Bob that are worth protecting.
