Girl Scout Takes on Branham Lakes Campground for Gold Award

Contact(s): Leona Rodreick

     Branham Lakes Campground in the Tobacco Root Mountains east of Sheridan will be receiving some extra special attention July 16-23. Claire Inman will be working towards her Gold Badge (this is equivalent to the Boy Scouts Eagle Badge) by rebuilding a trail bridge and conducting miscellaneous maintenance work throughout the campground.
     In order for the work to be completed, the campground will be temporarily closed July 16-23 to allow the Girl Scouts to work on these projects without disrupting visitors. Once the work is completed Branham Lakes will be re-opened to public use July 24.
     For more information, contact the Forest Service in Ennis at (406) 682-4253; or Sheridan at (406) 842-5432.
