Class 42 graduation live stream starts at 10 am Cheer on the cadets of Class 42 as they graduate from Montana Youth Challenge Academy!


Build the trail system you use! 9 AM – 12 PM This Saturday, June 27th at 9am, we need volunteers to build the Cliff Trail re-route. Please see the attachment for maps. The re-route is about 500 feet long, so with enough volunteers, it can be done efficiently! It would involve clearing some sagebrush and digging the path. Our partner, the Beaverhead-Deerlodge Forest Service, will loan us some digging tools. Please bring some shears or other pruning tools if you can.

If we receive enough volunteers, a second team will head to the NW Passage Trail to set-up the trail markers across the valley. This project will involve setting T-posts at each marker, so the cows do not knock them down anymore.

Please RSVP to beaverheadtrails@gmail.com, so I know how many digging tools to borrow, and how many people to expect.

Also, bring good shoes and clothing, gloves, a hat, a water bottle...

We will have water jugs to refill your bottles at the trailhead.

Rockhounds Anonymous Exploratory Meeting If anyone is interested in group trips to visit rock piles, geological sites or old mines please come to our exploratory meeting at the African oasis on Saturday, June 27 at 3 PM.

King Friday at H Bar J Saloon in Wise River! 7 PM – 10 PM Take the beautiful drive to Wise River, grab a bite to eat and dance to the music of King Friday!

Live music at Yesterday’s by Rachel and Ramona Potter Starts at 8 PM at Yesterdays Calf- A in Dell, Montana
