A healthy dose of nature

Print Article

Mist hangs over the Middle Fork of the Flathead Monday evening as the clouds broke briefly. The region has seen three straight weeks on gray, wet weather.

Glacier National Park and the Summit Medical Fitness Center invite the community to Park Prescription (Rx) Day, Sunday, April 23 at Lake McDonald Lodge from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Get a free blood pressure screening, learn how to use trekking poles, or participate in a scavenger hunt with prizes. Free, locally-made energy bars will be available.

The Park Rx movement has doctors prescribing regular doses of outdoor time and activity to combat chronic health issues like high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and depression.
