What: "What is there to do on Montana’s prairies?”

Where: Overlook at Lone Pine State Park
Pack a picnic dinner, grab a chair or blanket and come to the Overlook at Lone Pine State Park on Saturday, Sept. 12, from 6 to 7 p.m. Mike Kautz from the American Prairie Reserve will be the guest presenter, answering the age-old question of “What is there to do on Montana’s prairies?”
Did you know that one of the last great grassland areas in the world is right here in Montana? Kautz will offer a visual tour of the Great Plains and the many hiking, biking, paddling, hunting and wildlife watching adventures available on Montana's prairies. Famous for hunting and river trips, the Missouri Breaks and Great Plains are also home to great bike packing, birdwatching, scenic gravel road drives and camping. Kautz will highlight some of the recreation opportunities in the northeastern corners of our state.
