Events will be held at the Montana Audubon Center facility adjacent to the entrance to Norm Schoenthal’s Island, which is the Yellowstone River Park Association’s most popular success story for riverfront park trails.
Representatives from the BLM, Montana Audubon, Forest Service, Yellowstone County, as well as various non-profits including YRPA, Billings TrailNet, will be displaying.
Come experience the Forest Service Bear Aware interactive bear defense exhibit. Enjoy a Forest Service Bear Educator presentation - “Getting to know the Bears of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem”, to learn more about the actions we can take to stay safe in bear country and avoid negative bear encounters. Presentation time is 1:00 pm.
There will be lots of giveaway items and drawings for great outdoor gear.
Volunteer for a morning of restoration activities at the Audubon Center’s 54 acre site by helping to develop new wildflower fields, native tree and shrub planting, pond algae removal and much more. The Restoration work will run from 9-noon on Saturday.
