Montana State Parks News - Region 2

(Stevensville, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) will host a National Public Lands Day volunteer event at Fort Owen State Park on Saturday, September 22nd, from 9am to 12pm. This event is a partnership between Montana State Parks and Friends of Fort Owen.

We need your help to protect and preserve one of Montana’s important historic places! Celebrate this National Public Lands Day by staining, painting and cleaning Fort Owen State Park. Volunteers will get hands-on experience preserving historic structures on public lands and learn how much effort it takes to maintain our history.

This event starts at 9am sharp and will include a short orientation. Volunteer spots are limited so we ask that folks attending register by contacting Montana State Parks AmeriCorps member, Jillian Leblow, at JillianLeblow@mt.gov. Please wear clothing appropriate for staining and painting. Gloves, tools and refreshments will be provided. Parking is available on the surrounding private property for this event only.

For more information contact Jillian Leblow at (406) 542-5500 or JillianLeblow@mt.gov.
