RSVP Tickets

In the summer of 2020, Elise Watts set off with her son and daughter, 6 year old twins, for 3.5 weeks navigating the windswept ridgetops of the Great Burn Proposed Wilderness. They covered nearly 80 miles, visited 16 lakes, had numerous wildlife encounters and made lasting memories. Please join GBCA and the Watts family for an evening to explore not only the Great Burn, but a larger discussion on introducing your kids to the outdoors and creating lifelong lovers of wilderness.
