Picnic With Your People

August 11, 2020

Good food and beautiful outdoor spaces? Those are two of our favorite things!

On August 15-23, we are partnering with the Gallatin Valley Land Trust's NextGen advisory board to celebrate both. Fill up your picnic basket with meals featuring local ingredients, then head outside and enjoy a picnic along our public trail systems and parks.
