Center Activities and Updates- January 2017


Kids Campfire Fridays

Campfires, stories, games, and exploring nature? Sounds like a great time!

Sign your kids up for a special evening event just for them, and take some time for a date night yourself. All Campfire Fridays at the Audubon Center feature nature-themed activities, games, and plenty of outdoor play under the supervision of our experienced teacher-naturalist staff. Participants should be prepared for outdoor time, including appropriate clothing and footwear, though we’ve got plenty of indoor activities (and hot cocoa) to warm up in inclement weather. Ages 4-12, $30/child (10% member discount).

January 13, February 3rd, March 10th, April 7th. Register (required) by clicking on the links at our website.


Nature Nuts

Nature exploration comes naturally, especially for little kids! Children aged 18 months (walking) to four years (and an accompanying adult) join Montana Audubon teacher naturalists for guided outdoor play and learning about the local area.

Nature Nuts occurs every Tuesday from 10-11 am. Our 2017 schedule begins on January 10th. Meet in the front parking lot.

Cost: $6 per program or $40 for an 8-pack pass.


Yellowstone River Walks

This 680-mile undammed river is a cultural and ecological focal point for the entire region. Want to know more about it? Join our staff naturalists for a once-a-month guided walking tour of the river in all seasons, covering both the social and natural history of the area. $10/person, free for kids under 12. Two-hour tour begins at 10am. Reservations recommended–click on the link on our website.
