Conserving water, wildlife, and working lands
AND CELEBRATING IT WITH YOU!
INSPIRED BY OUR VALLEY HOME
Welcome to a new way of doing things.
This series of events are designed to make you feel right at home, in the Bitterroot Valley. Virtual events include an outdoor miles challenge, Bitterroot inspired picnic baskets, uniquely Bitterroot experiences for small groups, and a virtual music concert on a conservation easement.
Each event connects you to the beauty and lifestyle of the Bitterroot. From hiking outdoors, to picnicking with local food, to watching live music at a ranch you helped conserve from your favorite device–they all bring conservation and this wonderful community together.
Everyone deserves the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. And the more people connect with nature and open lands, the more we all benefit.
When you participate, more conservation happens, and more people have more meaningful experiences, so their quality of life, health and social well-being improve and in turn Bitterroot communities become stronger and more sustainable.
We hope you join one or all of our Homegrown Events!
