Conserving water, wildlife, and working lands


Inspired by the Bounty of the Bitterroot Valley

We are currently planning 2021 virtual events. Stay up to date by signing up for our eNews.

The Homegrown series of events were 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.

Conservation Staff Q & A

Join our newest team member, Melissa Odell, and Gavin Ricklefs, BRLT’s Executive Director for a behind the scenes virtual Q & A.

You can ask questions directly about project updates, the future of conservation in the valley, what obstacles BRLT faces, and so much more.

Register today for the Q & A.

Why I Care

“I volunteer to honor my dad and his love of the land.  He’s the reason why I love and care for the land.”
