Calypso Trail

  The Bureau Of Land Management?s Miles City Field Office hosted its 2006 National Public Lands Day event north of Terry, drawing over 50 volunteers from across eastern Montana, including Miles City, Terry, Baker and Glendive Sept. 30.

The annual event was held on the Calypso Trail, located on BLM-managed land. Volunteers installed a gate, erected an interpretive kiosk, picked up litter and performed trail maintenance. Over $4000 in associated labor costs
    were donated as a result.

According to Harvey Wolff, NPLD event coordinator, volunteers gathered over 15 cubic yards of trash and rusty wire, later hauled to a nearby landfill for disposal.

?We are pleased to have these
folks show up to take an interest to preserve and protect their public lands,? said Wolff, ?We appreciate all their hard work and effort.?

Part of the project area included a foot-trail leading to the locally renowned ?Natural Bridges?, several horizontal sandstone monoliths exposed by erosion which span a ravine. The Natural Bridges were made famous in several photographs captured by Evelyn Cameron, British immigrant and photographer of Prairie County
during the late 1800?s and early 1900?s.

The 13th annual 2006 NPLD event was predicted to see a record 100,000 volunteers, expected at over 1,000 sites coast to coast across the United States. National Public Lands Day is the largest volunteer, hands-on effort of its kind in the country and volunteers and sponsors annually contribute more than $10 million worth of improvements to public lands country-wide.
