Owen Sowerwine Natural Area


The 2018 OSNA Volunteer Monitoring Program will be starting in March. 

Volunteer Monitors provide the on-site information that underpins Flathead Audubon’s management of the Owen Sowerwine Natural Area.


You can be a volunteer monitor by just taking a Volunteer Monitoring Form along whenever you visit Owen Sowerwine, fill out the form based on what you see there, and send it to the address on the form.

Or you can sign up for a scheduled monitoring visit. You can pick the month you want for your scheduled visit, and pick whether you want to do it the first half of that month or the last half. You can sign up at a Flathead Audubon meeting, or contact Linda Winnie at lindawin626@gmail.com or 755-1406.

For more information, check out OSNA Volunteer Monitoring Program in the side bar to the right.

THANK YOU to all who have served as Volunteer Monitors over the years. Your help has been invaluable! Hope you’ll be able to help again this year.


The Greenridge Entrance to OSNA is now open.

The trees that were blown down onto the Greenridge entrance gate have been removed, and the Greenridge path has been cleared. Some minimal damage to the gate and nearby fence remains, but the entrance is open and ready to use. The remaining damage will be repaired in the spring.
