ANTS Program


Audubon Naturalists in the Schools (ANTS)

As our largest and longest-running program, ANTS provides year-long, field-trip-based programming to elementary school students in Billings and the surrounding area. In the 2019-2020 school year, more than 80 individual classes are enrolled, including every 4th-grade class in Billings Public Schools as well as classes from nine other districts. Grade-specific and standards-aligned, ANTS is an interdisciplinary science and Indian Education for All program, combining content and pedagogical approach in a way that is responsive to land and culture. Most of our ANTS classrooms are 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade. The program has been featured at a number of professional conferences in Montana and the region as a model of connecting classrooms with nature.
