Bitter Root Land Barn Dance Set for June 30

It’s all systems go for Bitter Root Land Trust’s second community barn dance on Saturday, June 30, at the Lazy Burnt Fork Ranch near Stevensville. Last year, to help commemorate BRLT’s 20th anniversary, the land trust threw a barn dance that drew around 300 people, and everyone had so much fun they decided to do it again.

And the Lazy Burnt Fork Ranch is an ideal spot for the event. “I definitely support the work of the Bitter Root Land Trust,“ Lazy Burnt Fork Ranch owner Steve Peckinpaugh said in the article. “They work really hard to custom fit easements to fit the needs of landowners… I think it’s nice to be able to have the venue on an easement where people can see for themselves why it’s important to protect these lands.”
