Community Discovery Day: Glacial Lake Missoula Tour to Ovando
September 15, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm$15
Community Discovery Day with the Glacial Lake Missoula Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute
We are sorry! This program is FULL. Please check our website for future Glacial Lake Missoula events and lectures.
Spend the day learning fascinating details about Glacial Lake Missoula! We will start at the Montana Natural History Center and take the MNHC bus for the tour. From Missoula, we’ll drive to Ovando along Highway 200, viewing evidence of Glacial Lake Missoula along the way. See mature canyons, stream capture, iceberg rings, faulting and more. Members of the Glacial Lake Missoula Chapter will interpret the geology. The trip ends at Ovando’s famous Trixie’s Bar, where Glacial Lake Missoula would have lapped at the door. Enjoy some fries or a drink before we head back to town.
Registration is required. There is a fee to cover bus costs.
