Summer is a time for getting out and exploring our landscapes. At Flathead Audubon, our primary objective is seeing all of our feathered friends, but that’s an excuse to see our wild country and ALL of its inhabitants.

We are getting outside with many incredible field trips. Make sure you head on over to our Activities and Field Trips Page to see what’s happening and what excursions you may want to join in on. During the summer, we take a break from our monthly meetings, but will resume again in September. Check out the Latest News which will have recaps of our field trips as well as some great stories and announcements as summer draws to a close.

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 meetings when they resume in the fall, at numerous retailers near you, or on our own Flathead Audubon Store.

In the meantime, get out, enjoy the longer days, and say hello to our summer birds!
