Proceeds from the event will help bring over 350 volunteers into the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex in 2019 to protect trails, manage invasive weeds, protect wildlife habit and more.

Tickets can also be purchased in Kalispell at Rocky Mountain Outfitter and in Whitefish at Sportsman & Ski Haus.
Along with the films, the event will offer beer from Jeremiah Johnson Brewing Co., snacks and raffle prizes, including passes for the Red Ants Pants Music Festival, jewelry, outdoor gear, Bedrock Sandals and more.
