HELENA, Mont. (NMB) – The Friends of the Missouri Breaks Monument is celebrating their 20th anniversary this year by holding several public events.
Executive Director Joe Offer says this includes virtual discussions that will begin later this month.
“We’re working with a lot of the local Bureau of Land Management staffers and a lot of the local experts in the area to talk about the different cultural aspects, ecological aspects, historical aspects of the monument, just trying to give people an idea of what all goes into the monument.”
Offer says they are also hoping to hold in-person events later in the year.
“Hopefully down the road we’re going to be in-person, just as things get a little bit safer and a little bit easier to get people together. We’re going to be highlighting Havre, Fort Benton, Great Falls and Lewistown. Those are kind of the communities we feel are the most impacted by the monument and the most impactful. We consider them to be kind of the gateway communities to the monument.”
Friends of the Missouri Breaks Monument is a nonprofit dedicated to protecting the Upper Missouri River Breaks.
