Bitterroot Flower Is Celebrated at Museum

Again this year, the Ravalli County Museum sets aside a day to highlight the Montana state flower and namesake of the valley – the Bitter Root.

Saturday, June 16, the museum will include a Native American themed event with arts, crafts, music and more.

Of course, the day starts with the Hamilton Farmers Market from 2nd Street to 3rd on Bedford, wrapping around the museum lawn.

In the museum will be displays that explain the connection between the Salish people and the flower, which is still dug for its roots.  Two tepees are now in place outside the museum and there will be kids’ activities, starting at 10am.

The Bitter Root Day is in its 32nd year, with many of those years supported by the late Henry Grant, whose west side Bitter Root garden was always a source for flower displays in the building.  Bitter Root seeds will also be available for purchase, so you can plant your own garden.
