Still looking for something cool to do this weekend? We’ve got the answer!

This Saturday, August 20, Glacier Raft Co. will be teaming up with The Museum at Central School for a “float back in time.” On this unique raft trip you’ll float with historians and learn about the beautiful North Fork of the Flathead River. This isn’t your average field trip; this is a one-of-a-kind-chance to see the North Fork through history’s eyes. You’ll hear interesting facts and fables, and you’ll see where the Oakes Steamship tried to navigate this Wild and Scenic river years ago.

Join us at the Big Creek Campground at 10 a.m. this Saturday. We’ll shuttle from there via Glacier Raft Co. bus to Coal Creek, and then we’ll be on the water! The float should last until about 3:30 p.m. Be sure to wear shoes you don’t mind getting wet. This trip is $80 per person, which includes lunch, river gear and the float trip. Call us for reservations at 406-888-5454 or the Museum at Central School at 406-756-8381. Hope to see you there!
