Montana Legislature

Since 1981, we’ve lobbied at the Montana Legislature to protect birds and other wildlife.

Birds and Climate

Birds species are often highly susceptible to the effects of climate change.

Renewable Energy

We strongly support renewable energy development in Montana and are on the forefront of making sure it’s done properly.


Montana has some of the most extensive and intact native grasslands on the continent; these rich landscapes face unique conservation challenges.


Sagebrush lands across the West have been lost, degraded, and fragmented, placing many native species and ecological communities at risk.

Streams & Wetlands

Wetlands and riparian areas are the most biologically rich habitats in Montana, but only account for a tiny percentage of the land area in the state.

Recovering America’s Wildlife Act

This historic bill is picking up steam in Washington DC.

Land and Water Conservation Fund

Montana Audubon supports full, dedicated funding for “America’s conservation program.”
