Recreation is a huge part of our culture and when Mike McKenna of the Wood River Land Trust (WRLT) reached out we couldn't help but say yes. Not only do we love Mike McKenna, we believe in his efforts with WRLT.
You can support them too. If you live in our area, swing in for their party at Mahoney's tonight. Farm Hard or Die donated SWAG for the event OR simply purchase Farm Hard or Die gear online during the month of March and and we'll make sure they receive part of the profit.

The Howard Preserve in Bellevue could use your help. And all you have to do to make a lasting and positive difference for our community, for our river, and for our wildlife is come to a party!
The Howard Preserve Expansion Party will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, at Mahoney’s Bar and Grill in Bellevue.
Local favorites Up A Creek are playing and there will be lots of raffle prizes for an event that promises to be fun for the whole family.
Late last year Blaine County Commissioners gave conceptual approval for a grant to assist the Wood River Land Trust and the City of Bellevue in adding five parcels and more than an acre to the protected open space of the Howard Preserve, which runs along the Big Wood River in the heart of Bellevue. To complete the transaction, money still needs to be raised to pay for items such for an Environmental Assessment Study, for closing costs and to set up a stewardship fund to care for the lands.
That’s why we’re throwing this party--not only to help raise the rest of the funds needed, but also to celebrate adding more land for people to explore and more open space for wildlife and native flora to flourish.
We hope you can join us for the celebration. If you can’t make it but still want to help, consider making a donation to the Howard Preserve or donating a raffle prize for the party.Questions? Contact Mike McKenna at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 208-788-3947.
