Mission Statement

The mission of the Montana Natural History Center is to promote and cultivate the appreciation, understanding, and stewardship of nature through education.

Description

The Montana Natural History Center offers many programs for children, including summer outdoor day camps for pre-K through 5th grade, weekly pre-school programs, Saturday Kids' Activities, and Center Visits. For adults there is an Evening Lecture Series, as well as Naturalist Field Days on a variety of topics, from raptor migration to lichens to geology. MNHC also offers several Montana Master Naturalist certification courses throughout the year. MNHC has a newly-renovated Exhibit Center filled with local animal specimens, information on Montana's ecosystems, a fossil display, and a Glacial Lake Missoula exhibit. There is an interactive Kids' Discovery Room, an Environmental Education Library with books for both children & adults, and a small native plant garden. MNHC also provides a tri-annual publication, Montana Naturalist magazine, free to members and the public, with feature articles about the flora & fauna of Montana, their ecology, habitats and conservation issues.
