World record bighorn ram event
News from Montana State Parks
BIGFORK – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) and Flathead Lake State Park invite you to celebrate public lands with a volunteer event and a viewing of the World Record Bighorn Ram Horns on Saturday, Sept. 22.
At 10 a.m., join park staff at Flathead Lake State Park at Wayfarers for a national day of service and get outside and give back to your public lands. Projects may include refinishing picnic tables, trail cleanup, and noxious weed removal. Bring water, work gloves, and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. After the work is finished, we will gather for snacks and refreshments.
Continue your celebration of public lands by joining us at 2 p.m. for a short program about the bighorn sheep on Wild Horse Island and to view the world record bighorn ram skull. Viewing will be open from 2 to 4 p.m., and we will have a silent auction of bighorn artwork from 2 to 3:30 p.m. The viewing and program are free and open to everyone. Participants need not volunteer to see the ram’s horns.
Participants will meet at the Harry Horn picnic shelter in the Harry Horn day use at Wayfarers. For more information, contact the Flathead Lake Ranger Station at 406-837-3041.
