2021 Volunteer Adventures! | Bob Marshall Wilderness, Montana

Action Opportunity, Conservation Action, Volunteer Opportunity

Whether you’re an avid backpacker who wants to hit the trail with a new group, a life-long visitor to The Bob who wants to lend to its stewardship, or a first time camper who’s comforted by having a trip leader organize logistics, BMWF's volunteer vacations are a great way to get outside and give back to Wilderness.

There’s no more intimate way to explore the wilderness of Montana than by helping to build and maintain trails here with the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation. You can volunteer for as little as one day or a weekend, or you can spend a week backpacking in the Western Montana wilderness. Families and children ages 12+ with adult supervision are welcome.

Considered by many to be the “crown jewel” of the wilderness system, the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex is comprised of over 1.5 million acres of untrammeled wilderness that stretches from Glacier National Park in the north, to Rogers Pass to the south in the northern Rockies of Montana. Straddling the continental divide, “The Bob” (as it’s known locally) is comprised of towering limestone reefs (including the famous Chinese Wall), range after range of majestic mountains, lush forests, broad basins and valleys, and two “Wild and Scenic” designated rivers. It also contains some of the best wildlife habitat in the lower 48 for elk, deer, moose, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, black bear, and the threatened grizzly bear, as well as native trout.


BMWF projects are free to everyone. We charge a small 100% REFUNDABLE deposit when you register to insure your commitment to the project. A lot of planning and effort goes into each project, so we want to be sure you are committed! Deposits can be refunded after you complete the project.

If you are unable to put down for a deposit but still really want to join, no problem! We are happy to waive the fee in special cases. Just shoot us an email and let us know that you pinky promise to show up!


BMWF will provide a Crew Leader, plus all food, tools and group gear. All trips are pack supported to make your packs lighter thanks to our volunteer wilderness packers.
