Come join us for Montana Audubon’s Annual Bird Festival, this year co-hosted by the Upper Missouri Breaks Audubon, June 9-11, 2017, at the Best Western Plus Heritage Inn in Great Falls. All festival activities will take place Friday through Sunday at the Heritage Inn, including registration, field trip departures, guest speaker presentations, meals, banquet festivities, our 40th Anniversary barbecue, and much more. The Heritage Inn is easily accessible from any exit to 10th Avenue South and provides easy access to all our birding activities and field trips.

Currently we have rooms blocked for festival-goers Friday and Saturday nights. Be sure to tell them you’re with the Montana Audubon Bird Festival group to get the special rate! If you’re planning to arrive early or late to take in the pre and post-trips sponsored by the local chapter, the hotel will try to accommodate you at our contracted rate outside the block.  We suggest you make your reservations soon by calling 406.761.1900 or 800.548.8256.

Here’s a Sneak Peak at Some of our Scheduled Events for the Festival:

  • Saturday afternoon – Montana Audubon staff will present information about their programs and work to conserve birds and their habitats.
