Saddle Mountain Park was donated to the citizens of Montana City as a memorial to a former resident.  Over time, the park fell into disrepair.   Local youth volunteers worked with scientists, community members, local government officials, and the Office of Public Instruction’s Learn and Serve initiative to restore the park.  As part of a peer training, the youth will host a presentation of their project.
