The Carter County Geological Society will receive $109,187 from a recent Montana Department of Commerce tourism grant to install track lighting, spotlights and motion sensor fixtures illuminating the heritage of the exhibits in the museum. A rendering of the museum's Lambert Hall is shown above.

On Monday, The Montana Department of Commerce announced more than $1 million in grant funding was awarded through its Tourism Grant Program to strengthen local economies in twenty-one communities.
