More about the picnic and ballot watch forum:  Please attend a summer picnic and potluck celebrating southwestern Montana’s rich conservation culture and history on a beautiful working ranch nestled against the Gallatin Range.  The event features a Conservation Ballot Watch Forum exploring how two ballot measures will affect clean water and wild country. Experts will discuss I-166, which would ban corporate campaign $ in elections, and LR-123, which would provide a tax “kickback” under certain circumstances, most of which would benefit millionaires.  Opponents to LR- 123 believe it would cripple the agencies that manage habitat and water resources and public health and safety. 

Please bring a dish to share, a plate, utensils and a chair.  Drinks and entertainment provided.

Win great prizes!  Raffle tickets cost $10 each, or purchase three for $25.  Purchase enters folks to win one of many great prizes, including locally sourced and produced goods and services like a romantic get-away, wolf-watching tour in Yellowstone, outdoor gear and more.  Ticket-holders need not be present to win.  Purchase tickets at the door, or at  Contact Dave Tyler at for more information.
