WHITEHALL — Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park will present a free talk at 8 p.m. each Saturday in July in the park’s campground amphitheater. The presentation is titled “Night Skies at Lewis & Clark Caverns.”
Fish, Wildlife and Parks ranger Ramona Radonich will guide visitors through the constellations and tell the stories behind the stars. Participants will see a star that powered the lights to open the 1933 Chicago World's Fair, as well as the famous “double-double.”
Even though the night sky isn’t visible when these presentations are held, FWP staff will provide materials and information that will guide people in their own star-gazing pursuits. These presentations are free to Montana residents. Non-residents must pay the normal entrance fee when visiting Montana state parks.
Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park is about 15 miles southeast of Whitehall, along Montana Highway 2. For more details about the park, visit stateparks.mt.gov/lewis-and-clark-caverns or call 406-287-3541.
