MWA Volunteer Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risk Agreement 

Montana Wilderness Association (MWA) makes every attempt to keep volunteers safe by providing safety gear, well maintained tools, and experienced leaders in the field. However, outdoor work and trail projects have inherent risks that are not 100% eliminated even after intentional mitigation. Each MWA volunteer must take responsibility for their own decisions as well as understand and accept the potential dangers and risks involved with a volunteer project. Please read the MWA Volunteer Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risks Agreement and let us know whether you agree to the terms stated. Please click on the document link if you haven't already to review.

YES must be selected to participate on MWA project(s).
Under 18 Years Old?

If you are a minor (less than 18 years old) we require the MWA Volunteer Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risks Agreement to also be reviewed by your parent/guardian. Please download the form at the link given and have your parent/guardian check off below that they also agree and accept the terms of the MWA Volunteer Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risks Agreement.

Risk Analysis

All volunteers must read through the Risk Analysis. This information is intended to keep you safe, inform you of hazards and help you mitigate risks while on a project. Safety will be our top priority throughout the project.

Yes must be selected to participate on MWA project(s).
Emergency Contact

Please enter info for someone that will NOT be on the volunteer project with you. Make sure this person knows they are listed as your emergency contact and knows when you will be on the project.

Medical Information

This includes pharmaceutical, environmental and food-related allergies. Please put "none" if applicable in field above.

Info is kept confidential. Volunteers are required to self-administer medications. Volunteer must inform project leaders where medications are stored while on project in event of emergency. Volunteers are requested to contact the MWA if any medical or health condition changes before the start of selected project. By accepting this agreement you acknowledge that providing inaccurate medical or health information or falsifying medical or health information can create serious risks to participant or others, and/or can result in participant’s dismissal from the trip.

Please understand that although MWA staff may review your health information and accept your registration, ultimately, it is the participant’s (and parent/s of minors) responsibility, in consultation with their physician, to determine if MWA activities are an appropriate match. Participants understand that they share in the responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others on the trip. Please review the MWA Volunteer Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risks Agreement.

Food and Dietary Needs/Wants
Meal planning and cooking for a big group in the backcountry can be a difficult task. We are happy to accomodate vegetarians, but might not be able to accomodate rigid restrictions or diets.
