We use the best available science to ensure the survival of Montana's birds and other wildlife.

Birds & Science

Montana Audubon strives to ensure the long-term survival of our state’s native birds, other wildlife and their habitats over time. We place our conservation focus on at-risk ecosystems such as riparian areas, wetlands, sagebrush country and native prairies. Working collaboratively with landowners, government agencies and other entities, Montana Audubon uses the best available science to encourage and implement sound conservation management of our state’s incomparable natural heritage.

Montana Audubon River Initiative:

Our program to conserve riparian habitat along some of Montana’s most iconic waterways.
