The Forty-Seventh Skateboard Donation

Land Tawney is a life-long friend who I share many fond memories with. Some of my favorites, and I bet his as well, were from the pack trips we used to take with our dads into such revered wilderness areas as the Bob Marshall, Frank Church - River of No Return, and Yellowstone Park. Along with my brother, Matt, and his sister, Mikal, we kids experienced everything from whiskey (thought it was iced tea - boy was I wrong) to one extraordinarily awesome, and rowdy as hell, horse race across a mountain meadow, which we still talk about to this day!!!

Land is now the President/CEO of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, an organization based here in Missoula, who's "taking a leadership role in advocating for the conservation of wild places" so future generations of hunters and anglers will have somewhere to hunt and fish in a natural setting. Considering the persistent threat of development, it's reassuring to know that Land and BHA is here fighting to preserve the opportunity for "hunting deep in the backcountry or fishing on a remote river."

While BHA and 4Missoula are dedicated to different "wild places" we're both here to ensure the future a better place for everyone. Thank you, so much, to Land and the Backcountry Hunters and Anglers for the skateboard donation, which, in its own little way, serves to empower...We the People.

Sincerely,

SPM
