Glendive, MT – Makoshika State Park ( will host a Mystical Creatures Weekend on October 26 and 27.

Join us on Friday, October 26, 6:30 p.m. for a fun program about Jackalopes. Despite (or possibly because of) their humorous nature, stories about jackalopes and other mysterious creatures teach us about the history and culture of the area from which they originate. Hear an old-fashioned jackalope story, talk about the reality of everyone’s favorite deer-rabbit, and go on a night hike to search for these elusive beasts at Makoshika State Park.

On Saturday, October 27, 6:30 p.m., join park staff for Ancient Monsters of the Night. The best way to study an animal is to observe it in the field, but we can still learn a great deal about an animal’s behavior long after it has gone extinct. Discuss the paleontology of behavior and the clues paleontologists use to learn whether an animal is nocturnal in this unique program at Makoshika State Park.

For more information, call the park visitor center at 406-377-6256.
