Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) will host “Bighorn Sheep” with Kelli Poole at Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park on Friday, May 25 at 8:00pm. The presentation marks the opening of the park’s Summer Campground Speaker Series.

Kelli has worked for the states of Colorado and Montana as a wildlife technician, working on bighorn sheep lamb production and recruitment projects, as well as assisting with bighorn sheep capture, collaring, and transplants. In addition, Kelli has worked on black bear population studies, mule deer migration projects, sharp-tailed grouse capture and relocation assignments, as well as many backcountry ungulate surveys.

The Summer Campground Speaker Series brings Montana experts to Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park to give informative and engaging presentations. All talks begin at 8:00pm at the campground amphitheater. The series runs every Friday starting May 25 and ending August 31.
