Almost every Saturday this summer, people will gather 'round a campfire at the Lower Campground at Lake Como for a Saturday evening Campfire Chat.
Fred Weisbecker of the Bitterroot Back Country Horsemen will be the featured speaker, along with other special guests.
Tod McKay, public affairs officer of the Bitterroot National Forest, said the new series will start at 8pm and will include history of Lake Como, cooking tips, cowboy poetry, Lewis and Clark lore and presentations about hawks and owls.
McKay said the program is modeled after popular campfire talks at Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks. Lake Como in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana is one of the most popular Forest Service destinations in the Northern Region. The talks are free, but you need a day use pass or a season pass to park in the Recreation Area.
