4th Annual

Beaverhead Treasure Hunt

Search for Treasure Across Beaverhead County Again this Summer!

The Beaverhead Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture and the University of Montana Western Glass Arts Club have partnered for another year for the Annual Beaverhead Treasure Hunt. One-of-a-kind, beautiful glass art objects, custom-made by UMW Glass students, will be hidden at local businesses from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Over 200 Mushrooms made by the students in the University of Montana Western Glass Arts Club, under the instruction of Professor Ruth King, will be hidden in the shops of: Bannack, Dillon, Lima, Dell, Grant, Jackson, Wisdom, Wise River, Dewey, and Glen. Visit these towns’ businesses for a chance to find a your own one-of-a-kind glass art treasure from Memorial Day through Labor Day!

This year’s Mushrooms are truly a work of art!  Search the county and collect these amazing objects d’art!

According to Chamber Executive Director, Rebecca Jones, “These 

pieces are so authentic and lovely, you will want to take it home to let

the sunshine through it!  Each limited-edition paperweight is stamped with a "W" for The University of Montana Western!


Participants may snap a selfie with their Mushroom in front of the business in which they found it and send to the Chamber to be entered into a drawing to win $100 Chamber Bucks! But the beautiful Mushroom is yours to keep!”


Contact the Chamber: or call/text 406-683-5511, just need your name and phone number and where you found your Treasure!


Rules of the Hunt!

  • 175 treasures are hidden from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

  • These treasures remain hidden everyday rain or shine. 

  • One paperweight, per person/per summer. Share the love!

  • Once you find one, it is Your To Keep!

Treasured Words of Advice

  • We use the term “hide” loosely; we want our treasures to be found!

  • The paperweights are cleverly hidden in plain sight, in public areas of local businesses and historical sites. Please do not disturb the areas.
