Bitterroot Moonwalks Start Saturday

Again this year, the Bitterroot National Forest is partnering with other valley organizations to present monthly “Walks by the Light of the Moon” family presentations.

Tod McKay of the Bitterroot National Forest said that programs are planned from June 2 through October (which will be the Ghost Moon).

The very first Moonwalk will feature information about Glacial Lake Missoula, a body of water that covered most of the Bitterroot Valley about 10,000 years ago and drained when a glacier melted in Idaho.

The Moonwalk will be at the Willoughby 40, a recently developed education area south of Stevensville. Go to Bell Crossing and instead of driving west, drive east on Willoughby Lane and look for the hiker signs. Soon, you’ll turn and enter a parking area. The presentation will begin about 7pm this Saturday, June 2, and will last about one to two hours.

Peter Christian talked to Tod recently about the series.
