History of the Montana Audubon Center Earth Day Celebration
The Montana Audubon Center began celebrating Earth Day in April of 2008 with a land restoration work party. Forty volunteers spent the morning weeding the nursery, planting shrubs and trees, and picking up trash on the grounds. The hard work was followed by a free BBQ lunch, birding hikes, and canoe rides on the ponds. Since our land restoration season kicks off in April, Earth Day became a great way to celebrate spring, get people outside, and start the season with a bang. From its modest beginnings with 40 dedicated volunteers, the annual celebration has blossomed and now draws over 150 people to the Center each spring.
