Join us and the Center for Native Plants as we talk all things plants! Why native plants? Come ask an expert! The program will begin with a half hour discussion surrounding plant cultivation and the importance of native plants. This interactive discussion will be led by a staff member from the Center for Native Plants located in Whitefish, Montana. Afterwards, enjoy a 2-mile wildflower walk and learn what plants you can eat.

This event is free to the public. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear good shoes if you plan on attending the hike. For More information call the park visitor center at (406) 755-2706.
