"'Protect what you love' means making the effort to preserve the amazing natural landscapes for our generation and those that follow. To run. To bike. To hike. To hunt. To fish. To birdwatch. To sit in solitude. To refresh and rejoice. To nourish our soles and our souls.
"We have to become actively involved and engaged in the preservation and conservation process or we run the risk of forever losing important open spaces and natural landscapes. I'm hopeful that the next generation(s) will regularly comment that they are pleased that we, as a community, made the commitment to preserve the natural landscapes in and around western Montana."
- Tony Banovich, Executive Director of Run Wild Missoula
