Youth Programs

Afterschool Nature Club

Afterschool is the perfect time to get outside. At the Audubon Center, kids can climb trees, catch bugs, look for animal tracks, build forts, and learn about the natural world, all with the guidance of our experienced Teacher Naturalists. Each session includes plenty of play time and a good dash of learning about nature.

Afterschool Nature Club is a drop-off program available for K-6th graders on Wednesdays from 3:30-5:00 pm during session dates. $50/participant ($45 for Members).

Session 1: Backyard Billings (Sept. 9-30)
Session 2: Nature Detectives (Oct. 28 – Nov. 18)
Session 3: Winter Wonders (Feb. 3 – 24)
Session 4: Spring STEM (Apr. 7 – 28)

Backyard Billings: Come explore and play in the fields, forests, and water that make up the big “backyard” of the Montana Audubon Center and Norm’s Island.

Nature Detectives: Take a close look at the clues left in nature to figure out what is living at the Center. We are sure to find tracks and scat!
Winter Wonders: Winter is a great time to get outside and play! Discover the Center in a whole new way as a winter wonderland.
Spring STEM: Design and create with outdoor materials as we

look to nature for engineering ideas.
