Frenchtown Pond State Park is an awesome place to fish, picnic, paddleboard and just hang out. There are many events at the park year-round. Here are a couple upcoming events that you may want to note:
Frenchtown Pond State Park hosts a Junior Ranger program every Tuesday, except July 4th, this summer. The program dates left are July 11th – What’s Up with Wildlife?, July 18th – It Happened Here, July 25th – Connecting with Cultures, August 1st – Geology ROCKS!, August 8th – The Wonders of Water, and August 15th – Celebrate Your Skills! The program starts at10am and ends at 11:30am. This program is FREE and is suited for children ages 5-12. It’s a great way for kids to play and learn outside. If kids attend two programs, they earn their Junior Ranger badge. If they attend more, they earn additional prizes!
Frenchtown Pond State Park will also host Bill Rossiter’s “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?” on Saturday, August 5th, from 7-8PM. This program is FREE and for all ages. “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?” views the Depression, not through history and literature, but through songs and “illiterature,” looking at what it meant to the working folk most affected by it. This “bareknuckle” musical report of songs and stories of the Great Depression is accompanied by banjo, guitar and autoharp. This is a Montana Conversation program, part of Humanities Montana.
