Rotary Club Donates $25,000 For Outdoor Learning Space

Posted: Updated:
WHITEFISH - Whitefish Interpretive Trails moves $25,000 closer to building an outdoor gathering place.

The Rotary Club of Whitefish donated the money to support the learning pavilion, which will be located about a half-mile up from the Lion Mountain trailhead.

Designs are already drawn up and the timber is ordered.

Whitefish Legacy Trails director Heidi Van Everen says it will be a place with picnic tables where people can learn and appreciate their surroundings, or maybe just get out of the rain.

"So many people enjoy the Whitefish trail and we want to make sure that we teach them when they're out in the landscape so that they understand the value of it," said Van Everen.

They're hoping to break ground soon to get ready for a grand opening in August.
