Madison Buffalo Jump event Saturday
September 25, 2019
Montana State Parks will host the Flying Buffalo Project in honor of National Public Lands Day at Madison Buffalo Jump State Park in Three Forks. The event is scheduled for Saturday, September 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Sky Wind World, Friends of the Madison Buffalo Jump, and park staff invite the community to celebrate National Public Lands Day at the state park to appreciate public lands and experience Native American art and culture through a kite building and flying. Dr. Shane Doyle will give the event blessing and the Native American Kids Toy Company will have a selection of fun items for sale. Fry bread tacos will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Kite kits are $12/kit, and the first 50 kits are free. The proceeds from the kite building kits will benefit the Friends of the Madison Buffalo Jump. The Friends of the Madison Buffalo Jump is a local volunteer, citizens group dedicated to protecting and preserving Madison Buffalo Jump and its extraordinary natural, cultural, historical, and archaeological heritage for posterity and the benefit of all people.
The National Environmental Education Foundation's National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands. Each year, hundreds of thousands of volunteers come together on the fourth Saturday in September to assist with various projects designed to restore and enhance public parks, forests, waterways and more. From trail maintenance to tree planting-volunteers of all ages and abilities roll up their sleeves and work side-by-side to care for public lands.
This event is sponsored by Sky Wind World, Friends of Madison Buffalo Jump and Montana State Parks. For more information, call (406) 285-3610.
