SPECIAL EVENTS

Check back later for updates!

Past Events:

A Swift Night Out
Tuesday July 7th at 7:30pm

During this event, hosted by the Montana Audubon Center, participants will learn about Chimney Swifts and how they can help to monitor local populations. Chimney swifts are fascinating birds that can be found in your backyard or, more accurately, a nearby chimney! However, little is known about their distribution in the state.

We are looking for eager volunteers that want to learn about chimney swifts and help locate them. There will be a presentation from 7:30-8:15 p.m., followed by an evening challenge to locate and identify local swifts by sight and sound.  All ages are welcome, but youth under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

The event will be led by Carmen Borchelt, Big Sky Watershed Corps of Montana Audubon. Questions? Contact Carmen Borchelt at [email protected] or Heather Bilden at [email protected]

Participation is free!
