Travelers’ Rest State Park Turns 10!

What is a “Make it Missoula Moments”?  It’s our way of giving a shout out to worthwhile NON-PROFITS and their events and happenings around Missoula.  If your non-profit organization has an event that you’d like to submit for consideration, contact us here.

On March 20, 2001 the Montana State Land Board accepted the donation of 15 acres of land in Lolo, Montana, effectively creating Travelers’ Rest State Park.  In the decade since,  Travelers’ Rest has gone through a transformation, becoming a destination for place-based education that uses the Lewis and Clark Expedition as a gateway to inter-disciplinary learning by people of all ages and cultures.

We invite you to join us in marking the 10th anniversary of Travelers’ Rest State Park on Saturday, March 19, 2011.  Noted Montana historian and Lewis and Clark expert Hal Stearns will be presenting as part of the 8th annual Winter Storytelling Series at 11 a.m. in the Holt Museum at Travelers’ Rest State Park.  Following Hal’s hour-long program, Travelers’ Rest birthday cake will be served.

This event kicks off a series of activities and programs to commemorate the 10th anniversary of this place that has been so important to  many for so long.  Please join us!
