The Center is a busy place, and community support makes it all happen. From our 54 acres of restored landscape and gardens to our educational programs, volunteers from all walks of life aid the Center in providing nature education and protecting habitat along the Yellowstone River.

The Center rests on 54 acres of restored habitat thanks to the Yellowstone River Parks Association, community volunteers, and local agencies. This work continues today and is completed primarily by community volunteers. Land Stewards have the opportunity to assist with Garden Maintenance, Citizen Science, and Restoration Projects.
Educational Programs are a large part of what we do at the Montana Audubon Center. Whether it’s a field trip, homeschool science program, summer camp, special events, open house, or any of the other programs we offer, we need a good team of volunteers to engage participants and assist staff.
Behind the scenes
Aside from restoration and program volunteering, the Center provides a host of other volunteer opportunities from social media development to general building upkeep and construction projects to special events coordination. Do you have a special skill you’d like to put to work for us? Please let us know in our volunteer application!

As an intern, you’ll work with our dedicated staff of teacher naturalists to gain hands-on experience leading outdoor and environmental education programs. Using our 54-acre outdoor classroom, you’ll learn how to facilitate engaging science lessons, nature-based games, journaling activities, and cultural history lessons. Interns assist our staff in delivering programs, and may develop and lead unique programs of their own. As part of your training, you’ll develop naturalist interpretation skills for educating people about plants, birds, mammals & more. Interns may also have opportunities to assist with landscape restoration.
These are unpaid internships. You may earn academic credit through your college or university. Enjoy being part of something bigger than yourself – you will be supporting programs that provide nature education to people of all ages!
