Wild Montana releases fall Wilderness Walks schedule

The fall lineup features 26 educational experiences across Montana

Press release

HELENA — This year, Wild Montana will offer a fall Wilderness Walks season for the first time as part of the organization’s effort to provide year-round educational opportunities.

The free group outings combine education with wilderness experiences on public lands. Participants can graze on wild berries, marvel at constellations, summit a peak and write poetry, all in the name of conservation and community.

“Thanks to our amazing volunteers, we’re offering fall Wilderness Walks across the state,” Wild Montana Education Manager Sonny Mazzullo said. “Every outing is a great opportunity to make new friends, learn about pressing conservation issues in Montana, and have fun on public lands.”

The fall season begins with a whortleberry walk in the East Pioneers, a sunset stroll around Lake Elmo, and an adventurous trek up Nasukoin Mountain in the Whitefish Range. In honor of National Public Lands Day on Saturday, Sept. 23, our volunteer leaders will host four outings, including a birding walk in Giant Springs State Park and a celebration of the Lee Metcalf Wilderness.

Wild Montana will offer 26 Wilderness Walks this fall. The complete schedule is available at . Wilderness Walks are free to join, but registration is required. Wilderness Walks are volunteer-led, often in partnership with supportive businesses and conservation partners. Registration opens for each walk one month before the event date. September walks are now open for registration.
