Missouri Headwaters State Park – Trident Extension Trail
Master Planning Workshop
Oct. 14th at 6:30 p.m., MT Fish, Wildlife & Parks , 1400 S. 19th
Come be a part of the creation of a new trail at Missouri Headwaters State Park. This trail will start at the boat-ramp parking lot at Missouri Headwaters State Park and continue eastward onto Holcim Inc. property towards the old town site of Trident. The trail will parallel the Missouri River and provide excellent viewing of the limestone cliffs where Peregrine Falcons, Prairie Falcons and Great Horned Owls have been found nesting in the past. The trail will also provide opportunities to view water birds, such as Double-crested Cormorants, on the river’s gravel bars, and numerous song and grassland birds, such as Lark Sparrow.
To help design the trail Sacajawea Audubon Society has teamed up with the Montana State University-Landscape Design Studio, and we would like to invite you to participate in a master planning workshop. During the workshop students will present a contextual project overview. This will be followed by a gathering of input and ideas from workshop attendees.
So bring your memories, experiences and ideas to the workshop and help create a vision for the new trail!

There is a proposal to install a shade structure whose cost exceeds the available funds. The board is in favor of an interpretive trail that is focused on support of education and conservation.
Motion approved that SAS supports signage at the trail over spending money on the shade structure; also that we review the MOU for the trail and will write a support letter to FWP and Holsom.
