Milltown Dam Removal 10 Year Anniversary Celebration

Join the Montana State Parks Foundation for a fundraiser to support Milltown State Park at Imagine Nation Brewing Co. on Thursday, March 29 from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. Milltown State Park is the newest state park in Montana, and its confluence area is set to open on June 23, 2018.

Once improvements are completed, Milltown State Park will include trails, an interpretive shelter and river access for boaters and floaters. Interpretive displays, placed throughout the park, will explore the natural and human history of the area.

In honor of the ten year anniversary of the dam removal, the Montana State Parks Foundation plans to improve Montana’s newest state park with benches, trees and landscaping. At the fundraiser, individuals and families can secure their legacy at Milltown State Park by purchasing a bench made from logs recovered from the bottom of the Milltown Reservoir, crafted by Bad Goat Forest Products, or buying a tree to be planted in the park. There are limited quantities of benches and trees, so everyone is encouraged to attend the fundraiser early.

Along with the benches and trees, there will also be a select number of posters by Monte Dolack available for those who donate $250 or more. This is a one-time run of only 17 posters of Dolack’s “Witness to Change,” and anyone interested is encouraged to donate soon to secure one of these limited edition posters.

There will also be raffle prizes from local businesses. This is a family-friendly event with a food truck on site, so bring the whole family and enjoy great beer, food and support Milltown State Park improvements at Imagine Nation Brewing Co. on Thursday, March 29 from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m.
