About Montana Audubon
The Mission of Montana Audubon is to promote appreciation, knowledge, and conservation of native birds, other wildlife, and their habitats. Founded in 1976, Montana Audubon has built effective programs in public policy, education, and bird conservation to serve its members and Montana’s nine community-based Audubon Chapters.
Montana Audubon works through and with people to identify and conserve vital ecological systems for birds and other wildlife.
Montana Audubon uses the best available conservation science for identifying the threats to these ecological systems: systems such as riparian zones, grasslands and forest systems.
Montana Audubon employs highly integrated Education, Advocacy and Citizen Science Programs to address and abate those threats, always focused on people taking conservation action.
Montana Audubon develops these Programs at a local level, striving to make them applicable to wide and diverse audiences, modified to local interests, concerns and needs. It is a sharply-focused, community-based program with multiple tools to assist people in attaining the inspiration, knowledge and desire to take positive, conservation action to conserve these vital ecological systems.
Founded in 1976, Montana Audubon has steadily built a program to serve Montana’s 10 Audubon chapters: Bitterroot Audubon (Bitterroot Valley), Five Valleys Audubon (Missoula area), Flathead Audubon (Kalispell area), Last Chance Audubon (Helena area), Mission Mountain Audubon (Mission Valley), Pintler Audubon (Butte-Dillon area), Rosebud Audubon (Miles City area), Sacajawea Audubon (Bozeman area), Upper Missouri Breaks (Great Falls area), and Yellowstone Valley Audubon (Billings area). The state office opened in 1989.

Upcoming Bird Tours
Take your pick of birding adventures across Montana, Alaska, Texas, Mexico, Peru and Africa!
Montana Audubon is known for its annual tours to great birding destinations, and the 2011-2012 tour season is packed with eight different adventures offered close to home or as far away as Africa. You can explore the northeastern part of Montana by joining the Westby Weekend (then consider traveling on to Glasgow for the 2011 Bird Festival), or marvel at the abundance of species at Red Rocks Lakes in southwest Montana.
New on our Montana tour list is the Raptor Weekend where you can witness and participate in the banding of hawks and eagles. Our tours also take birders to exciting places across the world to experience the global diversity of birds, habitats and human cultures. Imagine discovering the African Finfoot in Gambia Africa or the Andean Cock-of-the-Rock in Peru.
