Visitor Tips and News About Asbestos Memorial Picnic Area
Community Asbestos Memorial Project picnic area
On the south bank of the Kootenai River is a picnic shelter built and named in honor of the many Libby residents who have been harmed by the tremolite asbestos dust from the vermiculite mine operated in Libby Montana by W. R. Grace & Co. It is complete with one of the Libby eagles.
Many in Libby would like to forget the disaster that is still brewing in the bodies of its residents. Maybe a picnic shelter is making the best of a bad situation.[ManaliPC, 11/18/2011]
