Lessons in the importance of communication, creativity, and reassessment.

Recently, we engaged in an action-packed tour of the Flathead Valley which found us working with youth and refining our technical skills on the trail and on the road.

Last week, the Northern Rockies Youth Expedition Leaders embarked on a backcountry hitch in the Great Bear Wilderness. They practiced their backcountry camping, project management, and crosscut saw skills.

Montana Conservation Corps (MCC) will debut the short (9 Min.) film, ‘Never Too Young’ on Wednesday, May 29th 4:30-5:30 pm at Fire Artisan Pizza in Bozeman.

May 20th came around at an amazing speed for many of us and the excitement in MCC’s Helena office that day was palpable. Each person bringing their own collection of thoughts and experiences to the table, we were all ready to begin our next big adventure.

Kalispell Planting Hitch 4/29-5/3

At this point of the season it has become clear that we have all grown fond of the Flathead Valley.  This was especially evident when our pre-season crew of leaders was all smiles after receiving the news that we would be working in Kalispell for the week.  The assignment was mainly to plant native trees in a city park to reforest an area adjacent to a housing development.  Although not as glamorous as spending a week in the wilderness, the people and the work was pleasant.

The first week of work training was, put simply inspiring. Being paid to immerse yourself in nature, history, leadership education, and all that encompasses working with MCC, is a one of kind opportunity.
