BEAUTIES of the BISON RANGE
May 31 @ 6:30 AM – 4:00 PM
Join Darcy Thomas to savor the beauties of the Bison Range in Moiese. The Bison Range is home to many birds such as Bald and Golden Eagles, Lewis’s Woodpeckers, Red-naped Sapsuckers, Willow Flycatchers, Lazuli Buntings, and Grasshopper Sparrows. There is also wonderful native vegetation and many animals including Bison, White-tail and Mule deer, Elk, pronghorn, bear and coyote.
We will enjoy a short walk along the nature trail and Grassland Trail before touring the Visitor Center to learn about the Bison Range Restoration and the CSKT. After that, we will drive around West Loop, Red Sleep Mountain, and along Prairie Drive as we look for birds, wildlife and flora. Near High Point we will take a short hike on the Bitterroot Trail which leads to a beautiful rocky outcropping. This field trip will be limited to four cars and carpooling will be necessary. Passengers are asked to pay drivers for mileage and to offset the cost of purchasing a day pass. Plan to pay drivers $15. Bring binoculars, a spotting scope if possible, and lunch, snacks and drinks. There are a couple of restroom stops along the way. To register, contact Darcy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 406-407-8263.
