HAMILTON, Mont. (AP) - A 22-acre stretch of park land along the Bitterroot River in Hamilton will be dedicated Wednesday evening to the memory of Steve Powell, a musician and surveyor who died in 2013.

KECI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1K4yw1T ) that the Bitter Root Land Trust, which Powell co-founded, bought the land with private donations, grants and help from the Ravalli County open lands bond.

The Land Trust usually works to help conserve private landholdings, making this public land project a unique undertaking.

Many residents said they already enjoy the park. The land is a diverse riverfront landscape combining wetlands, river frontage, and a walking trail.

Tours of the park will start at 5 p.m. The dedication is at 6:30 p.m.
