Join us for National Public Lands Day At Flathead Lake State Park -Saturday, September 24th from 10am to 12pm

(Bigfork, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) will host a National Public Lands Day volunteer event at Flathead Lake State Park at Wayfarers on Saturday September 24th from 10am to 12pm.

National Public Lands Day is America’s largest volunteer event for our public lands. It is held in late September to draw volunteers out to help improve and enhance our nation’s public lands. Over 30% of America’s land is public land. In Montana, we take pride of our public lands. The vast amount of wilderness and recreational acres in Montana is incredible. This year, consider contributing some time and labor in enhancing those public lands.

Volunteers will meet Flathead Lake State Park staff in the Harry Horn Day Use Area of Wayfarers. From there we will set out into different parts of the park to remove invasive weeds, cut back branches, and improve trails. The projects will begin at 10am and continue till 12pm. Please bring a pair of work gloves and come prepared to get a little dirty!

For more information call Anna Dudley at 406-837-3041 ext 0.

Located near the quaint resort town of Bigfork on the northeast shore of Flathead Lake, this park is 67 acres in size. A mature mixed forest makes this site very pleasant for camping and picnicking. From spring to late fall the area abounds in wildflowers. Nature walks over the rocky shoreline to the cliffs are popular with photographers for an excellent view of Flathead Lake.

Visit Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) and enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, swimming, boating and more and discover some of the greatest natural and cultural treasures on earth.
