Stories of wildlife encounters from the past and recent times will be featured at the Upper Swan Valley Historical Society’s First Friday Wildlife Encounters event May 4, 6 p.m. at the Swan Valley Community Hall, Highway 83, milemarker 42.

Lions may land at our feet, wolverines can fly through trees, and bears might lay for us in the bushes, according to stories told in the Upper Swan Valley Historical Society’s oral history collection. At this storytelling event, excerpts of oral histories will be mixed with stories of wildlife encounters told live by the people who experienced them.

The Wildlife Encounters storytelling event is free; everyone is welcome. Participants are encouraged to share their recollections. Tea, coffee and cookies will be served.

The event is funded by memberships and donations, and by Blackfoot. A Montana Cultural Trust Grant also supports the USVHS.
