Bull River Final Presentation
Jack Gladstone to speak
Organizers for the Bull River Outdoors Programs are proud to announce Native American storyteller and musician Jack Gladstone will appear by the campfire Saturday, September 25 at the annual season-ending event called "Shoot the Bull." Gladstone will be accompanied by musician Kendall Flint. This program, in an outdoors setting around a campfire, has become a popular activity in recent years as a good way to welcome the changing of the seasons.
The setting for Shoot the Bull is the Historic Bull River Ranger Station in the heart of the magnificent Bull River Valley. Turn north off Highway 200 onto Highway 56 and go 8 miles. Then turn east onto the East Fork Bull River Road and go two miles. Parking will be along the access road. This is a semi-primitive location with no facilities.
Participants are advised to bring their own chairs, dress appropriately for the weather, perhaps bring a blanket should the evening air be frosty and feel free to bring snacks and beverages. Some snacks and hot chocolate will be provided. The campfire will be lit at 6 pm and the program will begin at 7 pm.
Gladstone, a Blackfoot Indian, is a well known storyteller throughout the American West. It will be a real privilege to have him and Flint at Shoot the Bull. In part, this event will mark and celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Wilderness Act in an area embraced by the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness, one of the original wilderness areas designated in 1964, and the Scotchman Peaks, an area long proposed for wilderness protection.
Bring the entire family and your friends for a special night under the stars with Jack Gladstone and Kendall Flint. The event is free and open to everyone. Come early to get a spot close to the fire. For more information contact Dennis Nicholls at [email protected]
