Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks’ Becoming an Outdoor Woman Program is sponsoring a Beartooth ecology and botany class July 11-13 in Red Lodge.

The Beartooth Plateau is an interconnected “archipelago” of high-elevation land that contains one of the largest contiguous alpine areas in the lower 48 states. Participants will spend 1½ days exploring the Beartooth Plateau’s diverse plant, bird and wildlife species. The class runs Friday evening through Sunday afternoon; transportation is provided for the field trips.

The class fee, which includes meals, is $200 or less depending on lodging choices.

Registration forms are available on the FWP website at fwp.mt.gov; click “Becoming an Outdoors Woman,” under the Education tab.
