Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will host a class on avalanche awareness at Montana WILD on Feb. 10.

The program is geared toward families and teens who recreate outside during the winter.  Avalanche experts will talk about snow science, determining avalanche dangers and what triggers them. Participants will get the chance to see and use avalanche beacons, probe poles and shovels.

The program begins at 6 p.m. at the Montana WILD Education Center, located at 2668 Broadwater Ave, next to Spring Meadow Lake State Park off Highway 12 West.

For more information, call Liz Lodman at 444-9940.
