Meet the locals
Current members at the Benefactor level ($1,000 and above) receive an invitation to MALT's spring happy hour reception, Meet the Locals, which offers supporters the opportunity to hear directly from a local farmer or rancher as well as MALT's Executive Director.

Member Hikes on MALT-Protected Ranches
As one of our membership benefits, we offer invitations to members and their families to join us for a hike on MALT-protected ranches that are normally closed to the public. Enjoy a guided hike and mingle with other MALT supporters while hearing about the history and ecological richness of our ranching community. In 2016, we explored Black Mountain Ranch, protected by MALT since 1993, and Gallagher North Bend Ranch, protected in 2016.
