Welcome to Flathead Audubon

We strive to be your Northwest Montana Bird Headquarters. Feel free to return to this site many times for everything “Birdy.”

As the days get shorter and the temperatures drop, two things happen here at Flathead Audubon.  First of all, we head up to Jewel Basin for another season of Hawk Watch. Come up and join our volunteers – no birding experience necessary! Keep track of our season’s counts with live updates via dunkadoo.org!

Second of all, our monthly general meetings kick into gear with great presentations and a time to get all “birdy-nerdy”. These events are the second Monday of every month from September through May.

Also, our 2018 Phenology Calendar called “Glacier Country” is now available for sale! It features 365 days of “what’s happening” in northwest Montana’s wild places as well as activities. Some of these activities are done at home while others are events such as Earth Day and the Forestry Expo. Each month also features a wonderful photo of flora or fauna with a wonderful insight into what’s happening.

Purchase the calendar at our general meetings, at numerous retailers near you, or on our own Flathead Audubon Store.

Conservation Education Corner – September 2017

by Denny Olson Normally, the Conservation Educator’s role is a bit more laid-back in the summer. The FAS Board suspends its meetings, schools are closed, educational trunks are unavailable during the month of July, and scheduled events wind down after Birdathon, International Migratory Bird Day, Tally Campout and the Montana Audubon Bird Festival. I had […]
