(Missoula, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) announced today:
What: Beavertail Hill State Park Summer Speaker Series presentation, “Home, Home on the Range.”
When: Friday, July 27 at 8 p.m.
Where: Beavertail Hill State Park is located 26 miles southeast of Missoula on Interstate 90 to
Beavertail Hill exit #130, then .25 mile south on the county road.
Who: Bill Rossiter, folklore chair of the Humanities Division, Flathead Valley Community
College in Kalispell.
Rossiter’s musical presentation includes the values, experiences, humor and tragedies unique to life in the rural West. The songs and stories he shares—some serious, some funny, illustrate the many ways that surviving on the high plains wilderness for the long haul added flint to the soul.
Rossiter accompanies his songs with guitar, banjo, autoharp and harmonica. Audience members also have an opportunity to share their personal and family stories about making a home on the range in Montana.
In the 2011 summer season (May- August) more than 13,000 people visited Beavertail Hill State Park. Visitors find numerous wildlife viewing opportunities by following the park’s one-hour walking trail shaded by cottonwood trees. Species that might be spotted include moose, white-tailed deer, and birds such as nighthawks and great horned owls. The park’s spacious campsites are near the Clark Fork River.
