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.
