Montana Wilderness Association, Madison-Gallatin Chapter, has a Wilderness Stewardship program and we are looking for people that care about minimizing impacts of increasing numbers of visitors to our local trails that access Wilderness or Wilderness Study areas.

How to help:

Wilderness trail crews: Richard Lyon ( ) and Dean Center
( ) are both involved with our trail crews. June 1 the trail crew will be working on Lava Lake trail, and June 7th is the date listed for our trail crew to be working on Cliff Creek trail (on the Paradise Valley side of the Gallatin range). These dates are fast approaching so please contact Richard or Dean to get your name on the list for one or both of these trail work days. Equipment is provided.

Wilderness Stewards: Currently monitoring Lava Lake and Beehive Basin trails for the Forest Service, we look to add Emerald Lake and Hyalite Creek trails to our list. Practicing LNT and Authority of the Resource ethics, we are a friendly presence on the trails, counting cars at the trailhead, along with hikers, dogs, and campers that we encounter on the trail. We also note trail conditions that need attention. We report what we find back to the Forest Service and to our trail crews to help them manage these areas. You can contact Roxanna McLaughlin ( if you are interested. Training can be done by walking with an experienced Wilderness Steward just once, and from then on you can monitor the trail of your choice as frequently as you like.

Latenight Bus Attendants ride around with the bus driver on the Latenight Streamline and ensure the safety of the bus for both the passengers and the driver. Bus attendants make sure that no passenger gets too rowdy, that alcohol remains off the bus altogether, and ensures everyone is going to get where they are going. We want to get our passengers safely home and make sure that they are happy on the bus. If the situation arises, an attendant must also make sure to de-escalate a fight or call the police in case of a fight. Essentially, the attendant is the foremost authority on the bus who must ensure that the flow of the bus is not interrupted in anyway. This means being an enforcer, janitor, or just a friend depending on any given situation. Questions?
