Winter Wildlands Alliance just wrapped up a weekend full of events: the world premiere of the 15th Annual Backcountry Film Festival, the Snowball fundraiser for SnowSchool, and the three-day Grassroots Advocacy Conference. In Boise, Idaho, the “Wild Weekend” was a chance to showcase all that happens in the Winter Wildlands Alliance office. But it was also an opportunity to connect people with each other, to share knowledge and experience, and to inspire.

This week, we are hosting our 8th Biennial Grassroots Advocacy Conference in Boise, Idaho, and we couldn’t be more excited. It’s an opportunity to learn and to share alongside people who are passionate about public lands, recreation, the great outdoors, and wild places.

Events

The 7th Biennial Winter Wildlands Alliance Grassroots Advocacy Conference will take place at the Sierra Club’s historic Clair Tappaan Lodge, less than half an hour from Truckee, CA in the central Sierra Nevada.

Join policy makers, athletes, grassroots activists, scientists, mountain guides, local elected officials and other recreation and conservation stakeholders from across the country for two full days of engaging workshops and discussions on issues important to winter recreation and public lands. Get the latest developments in policy and planning issues, share grassroots successes, meet with public land managers, gain new advocacy tools and spend quality lodge time with colleagues, partners, new friends and allies.
