BIG SKY- Volunteers helping out at the eighth annual Big Sky Community Park Weed Pull will not only be cleaning up Big Sky’s Community Park, but will also be helping out a local resident.
The cleanup is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. on June 30, 2020, starting at River Pavilion and continuing until 6:30 p.m.
For every volunteer that participates in the community cleanup, the Big Sky Owners Association and Yellowstone Club Community Foundation will donate $10 towards helping Peter Scherfig’s medical costs.
On his 61st birthday, Scherfig went mountain biking alone in Big Sky where he was mauled by a grizzly bear causing severe injuries to his face and neck.
Scherfig has been a resident of Big Sky for 40 years and taught at Ophir Elementary School.
As an added bonus, every volunteer that pulls enough weeds to fill up a bag will be able to turn in their bag for a free beer from the Bozeman Brewing Company.
