The pavilion at the Group Use Area at the Lewis and Clark Caverns got some sprucing up thanks to the hard work of a local business.

According to Caverns State Park Manager Rhea Armstrong, 17 employees from Imerys Talc in Three Forks volunteered a total of 37.5 combined hours scraping and painting the pavilion.

Armstrong said they will be renting the site for a company picnic, and wished to donate some time to parks in addition to the rental.

The event was arranged by company employee Jade Stokke, who used to be a tour guide at the caverns in the late 1980's.

"Partnerships between local businesses and state parks prove mutually beneficial – keeping public lands available to Montanans while making each park more financially sustainable," Armstrong said.
