For 100 years, Milltown Dam blocked the confluence of the Clark Fork and Blackfoot rivers near Missoula, trapping toxic sediments that washed down from mines in Butte and contaminating local drinking water wells. Now, the dam is out, the mining waste is gone, fish can swim back upstream, and two mighty rivers flow free once more. This year is the 10th anniversary of the removal of Milltown Dam, and this summer the Milltown State Park will be open to the public, but there’s a little fundraising left to be done for benches and trees!
Join the Montana State Parks Foundation for an evening of celebration, storytelling, and fundraising for the soon to be opened Milltown State Park. Come show your support for the park and secure your ongoing legacy by purchasing a bench or tree that will be a part of the new state park. There will be raffle prizes from local businesses, guest speakers, and a food truck on site.
