On September 24, MCC AmeriCorps members mobilized volunteers on work projects aimed at improving and repairing public land use areas across the state. Thank you to the more than 200 volunteers who donated their time in support of National Public Lands Day. None of this would have happened without you!

Near Billings, volunteers improved trails in the Sundance Lodge Recreation Area. Video here.

In Bozeman, volunteers improved and restored the Gallatin Regional Park, aka the Dinosaur Playground. Video here.

Around Helena, working with the Prickly Pear Land Trust, MCC AmeriCorps members and volunteers completed a .25 mile section of the Waikina Sky Trail in the popular South Hills system. Volunteers also helped maintain areas of the Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park.

Lone Pine State Park and Herron Park received help from volunteers mobilized out of the MCC Kalispell office.

In Missoula, the popular Rattlesnake Recreation Area benefited from three new turnpikes in the boggy section of Spring Gulch. Volunteers also helped recover trails from spring flooding along the Tower Street trails. Read the Missoulian article here.
