Native Plants Celebration and Space Saturday At Lone Pine State Park Saturday, April 14, 2018

(Kalispell, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) will host two interpretive programs at Lone Pine State Park on Saturday, April 14, 2018.

Saturday morning from 9:30am to 11:30am, enjoy a Native Plants Celebration. Northwest Montana is full of vibrant, healthy plants and this program will help you identify what native flowers would be great on your property. Learn about bloom times, how to identify plants around you, and which native plants are edible.  

In the evening, from 9:30pm to 11pm, take part in Lone Pine State Park's first Space Saturday astronomy event.  The program includes an interpretive talk, as well as stargazing and telescope observation if the sky is clear.  Visitors should dress appropriately for the cooler night temperatures.
