| May 2, 2024 12:00 AM

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is seeking volunteers for a trail maintenance project on Wild Horse Island in May.

FWP is planning to spend a half-day on the island completing general maintenance of the state park's trail system on Saturday, May 11. Boats will launch from the Big Arm Unit of Flathead Lake State Park at 10 a.m. and return around 3 p.m.

To sign up for this trail project, call 406-837-3041. Space is limited. FWP will provide transportation to the island, tools, extra water and snacks.

The island has limited amenities, including one vault latrine toilet where the work will start. Cell service will be limited as well, but organizers will have emergency response devices on hand.

Volunteers will need sturdy closed-toed shoes, long pants, weather-appropriate clothing, plenty of water, snacks or a pack lunch, and should be prepared to hike 2-3 miles.

For additional information, call 406-837-3041 or email FWP Land Improvement Specialist Kalle Fox at
