Center Activities And Updates- February

Intern Joins Center’s Land Stewardship Program​ Trinity Pierce, Land Stewardship Coordinator

Montana Audubon welcomes 8th grade student, Ben Clark, to its team in Billings. Ben will be assisting Land Stewardship Coordinator, Trinity Pierce, as the new Junior Land Stewardship Intern at the Montana Audubon Center. Ben will be assisting Trinity with a variety of conservation projects. He is currently a student at the Canyon Creek School and enjoys being in the outdoors fishing, hunting, riding bikes, and exercising his dog. Ben is fortunate to have an outdoor space at home to explore, but his favorite place is the Center. He grew up participating in camps and after school programs, and became a Junior Naturalist-in-Training last year. Welcome, Ben!

Great Backyard Bird Education Carolyn Sevier, Education Coordinator

The Montana Audubon Center hosted four different events during the Great Backyard Bird Count weekend, including break camps for students enjoying Presidents’ Day Weekend and our open-house hours on Sunday afternoons. The biggest event of the weekend was an owl-themed Nighthawk Adventure family program on Saturday night. Forty people of all ages learned about local owls in Billings and went for an owl prowl on nearby Norm’s Island. The event was even featured as one of “Seven Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day” in the entertainment section of the Billings Gazette. Held on the second Saturday of each month, each month featuring a different theme, the Nighthawks series is quickly becoming our biggest public program.

Upcoming Program: Eco-Splorers for Adventurous Kids

Starting on March 22nd, this eight-week program gives kids a chance to get out and run around in nature after school. Tuesdays from 4-5:30, students from Kindergarten through the 6th grade will learn, explore, adventure, and investigate the natural world at and around the Montana Audubon Center. While so many of us remember having after-school adventures of our own–riding bikes, fishing, stomping in puddles–it’s hard to find kids who have the chance to do those things now. This program, like so much of what the Center does, provides a critical space for outdoor connection, building a conservation ethic in tomorrow’s leaders and having fun while doing it!
