Hey you! Want to get more involved in the mountain biking community? Here are some of FAMB’s volunteer needs for this year:
Share photos of riding local trails or representing FAMB! Tag your photos with #FlatheadAMB on Instagram or email them with a short title/description.
Want to help advocate for trails and mountain bike use? We could use volunteers that are willing to get involved in projects and help out with comments. This is mostly reading, but your feedback would be really helpful in putting together the comments that we submit to land managers. We also need people who can help spread the word about advocacy issues on social media. Please share our posts!
Design our next t-shirt! Calling all creative folks...we are planning to come out with a new t-shirt design this fall. Do you have a good idea?
We can always use some people to help us at events! Social events, BBQs, …
We need volunteers to help ride along at our kids clinics! Let us know if you can help!
Help us soliciting donors! Do you know someone who may want to donate to our cause? Trail projects and running a small non-profit requires fundraising and we can use all of the help we can get! We are looking for monetary donations and for donors to purchase trail building supplies. Contact us for more info or to find out about our specific needs! All donations are tax deductible.
Please contact our Program Director for more info on any of the above, or to sign up to be a volunteer. Thanks!
The US Forest Service has issued a draft decision regarding management of the Whitefish Face area, which spans from Haskill Basin to Werner Peak. The decision provides for 28 miles of new multi-user trails which will connect to Whitefish Mountain Resort trails, the Whitefish Trail, and to existing trails North of WMR. For more info, check out this Flathead Beacon article or the text of the draft decision. There will be a 45 day objection period before the final decision is issued. FAMB has represented the interests of mountain bikers throughout this process and is pleased with the result.
Flathead Area Mountain Bikers, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is working to promote mountain biking and improve trail access in the Flathead Valley.
