montana audubon - birds & science
All we do at Montana Audubon is with the long-term protection of birds, wildlife, and their habitats in mind. Our long-standing riparian, wetland and land use protection efforts continue to drive our successful conservation work. In the last few years, the Important Bird Areas (IBA) Program has become a vital tool as we work to integrate our policy and habitat protection efforts. And all these efforts are going to be critically important as Montana's climate changes.
The links to the above pages describe the work that we and others are doing on a daily basis. This work is truly collaborative - we work closely with the Montana Bird Conservation Partnership, agencies, non-profits, and individuals.
Citizen Scientists are a vital part of our conservation efforts, and Montana Audubon welcomes your help in our ongoing studies of birds around the state. We also invite you to suggest new projects you would like to see us undertake.
We also invite you to go on one of our birding tours. Our trips are safe, relatively inexpensive, and are guaranteed to produce wonderful looks at interesting birds in spectacular locales. Our tours help support local conservation efforts and serve as fundraisers for the IBA Program, and a portion of your cost is tax deductible!
