Montana State Parks ( announced the fifth edition of its Friday Evening programs will be held this Friday, June 23rd from 8 to 9pm.


Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park is filled with fascinating native plant species. The combination of riparian and prairie ecosystems creates a rich diversity of plants, many of which have been used as medicine by Indian tribes as well as pioneers. Join Robyn Klein for a fascinating talk on these plants that have a history of use in human health.


Robyn is a plant biologist with a background in medical botany, herbal medicine, ethnobotany, plant identification, and plant chemistry. Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park is one of her favorite places to view native prairie species.
