The re-enactment of the annual fur trappers' gatherings of the early 1800s will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 31, and Sunday, Sept. 1.
Event admission is free, but there is a $20 shooter's fee for ages 13 and older.
Directional signs to guide attendees to the event will be placed along the way.
It will include historic-style campsites and period-dressed re-enactors with many things to see and hands-on opportunities for the entire family.
Black-powder shoots, primitive archery, seminars on fur trade skills and lore, a Dutch oven cooking competition, music, storytelling, children's activities and a traders' row are planned.
The Green River Mountain Men is a nonprofit organization of men and women dedicated to educating the community about the pre-1840s fur trade era.
