Join MCC’s Greater Yellowstone region for National Public Lands Day in the Gallatin National Forest! Volunteers will have the opportunity to work on various maintenance projects including fence construction, social trail closure, stabilizing the platform at the top of the M, and reconstruction of the trailhead entrance. Come out and help give the iconic “M” trail some community support! Volunteers can meet at the “M” trail head and the day wraps up with a free lunch and t-shirt.

MCC’s Central Divide region and the City of Helena are linking up to continue efforts on 6th Ward Garden Park. Work on the five-year project began in May and is really starting to take shape! Volunteers will help lay a living forest floor on the mid-bioswale. The 6th Ward Garden Park’s number one goal is to provide “a healthy, reasonably self-maintaining, consciously designed and managed edible ecosystem that provides safe, beautiful, accessible, and enjoyable places to meet, learn, play, relax, and grow and enjoy food.” Volunteers should meet at 1235 Bozeman east of the HATS terminal in Helena.
