Earth Day at Montana Bed and Breakfast
Earth Day 2010 in the Mission Mountains of Montana
At Bear Spirit Lodge B&B, we are celebrating Earth Day 2010 by becoming a Certified Wildlife Habitat sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation. We are busy planting some more flowers and trees which will enhance the natural habitat for all the flora and fauna of this region. Our B&B appeals to all people young and "young at heart" for a real Montana experience.
For a good day excursion from Bear Spirit Lodge, visit the nearby National Bison Range full of wildlife. Up to 500 bison roam the Range, golden eagles nest at the top, the antelope play, and sometimes a black bear will amble across the road in front of your car. Founded in 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt, the Bison Range opens on May 9th with spring hours. The Visitor Center is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekends and holidays. Red Sleep Mountain Drive is open daily at 6:30 a.m. The high elevation is the perfect place to look East and see the Mission Valley with the backdrop of the snow-capped mountains. To the West, spectacular views and photo ops of the Flathead River abound. On a clear day, up at the top, you can see the southern shore of Flathead Lake. Come join us for a spring experience!
