Montana State Parks News - Region 5

(Glendive, MT) – Montana State Parks ( will host the Summer Youth Program “Map It” at Makoshika State Park on Thursday, July 25 from 9:30am to 11:30am.

Kids ages 7-13 are invited to enjoy a morning of learning and nature as we present “Map It”. As the digital age takes over, more and more traditional skills are becoming obsolete, but the ability to read and draw a map is still important. Understanding and reading a map can be crucial in emergency situations. It also helps develop spatial reasoning and how to relate to the world. Through this program, students will learn about maps, their characteristics, and how to read then make a map of their own.

Participants should wear weather appropriate clothing, sunscreen, bug repellant and bring a water bottle. No flip flops, please. Due to liability, we must have at least one additional adult (aside from instructors) per 10 students. Parents are strongly encouraged to share these fun learning experiences with their child. Program schedules and registration forms are available at the visitor center.

For more information call (406) 377-6256.
