Montana Audubon works at the local, state and national policy levels to protect our natural heritage.
Give Back on Giving Tuesday!
Tired of over-the-top consumerism of the holidays? Montana Audubon is participating in Giving Tuesday an international movement to remind and inspire people to give back to their communities.
Montana Audubon works each day to protect native birds, other wildlife and their habitats across this wild and beautiful state we all cherish. We hope our conservation mission resonates with you!
Please take a moment to offset the consumerism that permeates this time of year and express your thanks for the natural wonders of Montana by making a donation to Montana Audubon on December 1st!
And remember, Giving Tuesday is only the beginning of the “giving season”…we appreciate your support at any time of year!

It’s time for rival schools to step up to see who’s the healthiest! Support your team by taking our pledge to go healthy, and you’ll be entered to win tickets to the big game or a Fitbit. Plus, for every pledge we get, we’ll donate $1 to the Montana Audubon Center in Billings or the Flagship Program in Missoula.
It’s easy to play; just pledge to live healthier in November by eating healthfully, getting active, and reducing stress.
