2024 Events and Volunteer Opportunities

Want to connect with your western Montana conservation lands? Join us for our 2024 events and volunteering opportunities!

This list will be updated throughout the season:

Hands on the Land workday

Boehmler Easement Fencing Project

When: Saturday, April 27th; 9:30 am – 2:30 pm
Where: Boehmler family conservation easement, LaValle Creek, Missoula

Enjoy an early spring Saturday on private conservation lands! During this Hands on the Land workday we will be assisting the Boehmler family by replacing 1/4-mile of fencing. The project will help wildlife move more easily across the landscape, beautify the property, and make it easier to manage.

The scenic Boehmler family conservation easement is just a short drive from Missoula, located in LaValle Creek north of the Missoula airport. Five Valleys will provide lunch and refreshments to our volunteers. Please dress for changing fall weather, bring gloves and sun/wind/rain protection, as well as any fencing tools you may have.

Please RSVP to Mari at by Wednesday, April 24th. Directions and further information will be emailed to RSVP'd volunteers a few days before the event.

28th Annual Banquet & Auction

When: Saturday, May 18th, 5:00pm-9:30pm
Where: Adams Center, University of Montana, Missoula

This year, join us as we mark our first event inside the Adams Center! We are excited to move venues from the 50-yard line to the court to celebrate conservation in western Montana with our community.

Our Banquet is our largest event of the year and includes an exciting live and silent auction, a delicious dinner, and the opportunity to mingle with friends and neighbors while raising the funds needed to protect and steward this extraordinary place.

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday, April 3rd. Learn more.
