Cabinet Resource Group Annual Meeting

Posted on Tuesday, March 16th, 2010 by »

On Sat March 27th, CRG (the Cabinet Resource Group) will hold it’s annual meeting at the Big Horn Lodge (located at Mile Marker 7 on the Bull River Highway 56 just north of Noxon MT).  The fun starts at 4pm with a social hour (BYOB) followed by a potluck dinner at 5pm.  There will be a brief business meeting after dinner which will include updates on various CRG programs, including the campaign to achieve Wilderness designation for the Scotchmans.

The Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness began as program working under the fiscal sponsorship of CRG.  Although we are now our own, independent 501c3 (non-profit) organization, we still feel an allegiance with CRG for the leadership they have shown in wilderness advocacy in our region.

We also like to go for the great speakers and topics which CRG presents.  This year’s special guest speaker will be Erich Peitzsch.  Erich’s presentation is about “The Changing View from the High Alpine of Glacier National Park”.

Erich is a Snow, Ice & Climate Researcher with the USGS Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center, W. Glacier, MT.  His research includes such topics as avalanche mechanics, avalanche ecology, glaciology, and climate change effects in mountain ecosystems.  We’re sure you’ll enjoy meeting Erich and hearing all he has to tell us about this hot topic of global concern.

You do not need to be a CRG member to attend! The general public is not only welcome, but warmly invited to join in the festivities. So, come on out and enjoy a great evening at the beautiful Bighorn Lodge!
