BIGFORK – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) invites you to help clean up our public land in celebration of Earth Day at Flathead Lake State Park - Wayfarers Unit on Saturday, April 13, at 10 a.m.  

Join us for our Earth Day event to help clean up the park. We are celebrating this holiday by joining together to get Wayfarers ready for summer. There will be multiple projects including beach clean up, trail maintenance and preparing the buildings for the coming months. There will be free snacks, and you are invited to join us on a ranger-led hike after volunteering is finished at 1:30 p.m.  

Bring a water bottle, sturdy shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Meet at the Birch Grove picnic shelter (down by the water) to sign in and break into groups.  Please call 406-837-3041 to register for this free event.
