You'll learn about native plants in the Bitterroot at this month's 'Moon Walk' in Hamilton.

The Bitterroot National Forest will provide a botanist who'll lead participants on a short walk through Hieronymus Park, starting about 7 p.m. Saturday July 12.

The park is on the north end of Hamilton, next to the Bitterroot River Inn, the Veterans Monument and the Dairy Queen.

The event is free, and you'll observe plants, insects and possibly some wildlife. Speaking of insects, make sure the bug spray is handy. The park is near the river and also has areas of tall grass, providing comfortable homes for mosquitoes, which love to feed at dusk. The talk will also include identification of noxious weeds and how to fight them.

The Moon Walks will be monthly through October.
