Happy Earth Day!

  Yesterday was an exciting day for us here at MNHC.  Lisa Bickell, our intrepid Education Director, led a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the installation of five new interpretive trail signs along the Clark Fork River Trail.  In a collaboration with the Biomimicry Institute, Run Wild Missoula and the State Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks, MNHC created these signs to explain how certain biological attributes of local species are inspiring scientists to create and improve products for humans.

  Mayor Engen was also on hand to help with the ribbon cutting.  He reiterated that improving the trails in Missoula enhances life for all residents and encourages them to get outside.  More improvements will be coming to the trails thanks to this partnership - mile markers, additional signage and detailed trail maps will all debut this summer so stay tuned!

  Be sure to read the Missoulian's article about the ribbon cutting and check out the video!

Stay tuned for photos - our internet is a little slow today!
