Over the course of two days, 332 fifth through eighth-graders gathered at the foot of Sphinx Mountain in the Madison Mountain Range to participate in the camp, hosted by the Forest Service. Students from Alder, Cardwell, Harrison, Ennis, Sheridan, Twin Bridges and West Yellowstone participated.
Last Friday, May 6, 2016, more than 100 students from Ennis, Harrison, Cardwell and Alder descended on Fan Mountain Arena south of Ennis for Ag Days.
Students in Sheridan High School’s agricultural classes are nearly done with a class project in which they constructed a stock feed bunk to be placed at the Bear Creek trailhead.
The Bear Creek trailhead, 20 miles south of Ennis, is a popular area throughout the year and is one of very few trailheads in the Madison Valley that provides camping that supports stock access into the wilderness.
