The 2021 the work day for Owen Sowerwine will be held Saturday, October 9, from 9 am to about noon. We would be thrilled to have you join us. Meet in the parking lot of Kalispell Montessori (349 Willow Glen Drive), to say hello (at a safe distance), and to divide up the jobs (because of health concerns, we will not have access to the school building). Then we will regroup at various locations to volunteer a few hours to get some work done. We will work outside at disbursed locations to avoid close contact. We encourage you to maintain a healthy distance and carpool only with family members or while wearing a mask. Wear sturdy footwear and clothing appropriate for the weather, bring a pair of work gloves and some water; at least one person in each group should have bear spray. A nut bar and sparkling water snack will be provided in the parking lot.

The various jobs (and tools you could bring) include:  replacing faded materials in the kiosk display (all materials/tools provided); setting fence posts for the research deer exclosure (work gloves); stacking sticks and small logs at the viewing blinds (work gloves); emptying nesting boxes (mask/nitrile gloves provided); rework edges of ADA trail and bench (bring loppers, shovel, rake, gloves); trail work on Greenridge entrance (bring shovel, rake, pulaski/pick, gloves). If you have questions contact Pam Willison, 406-270-0225 or Thanks, and I hope to see you there!!
