SUMMER EDUCATION SERIES
The Montana Raptor Conservation Center invites you to our first ever Summer Education Series! Join us in our beautiful new outdoor amphitheater to learn about raptors in an hour-long, biology-based education programs. Each week meet some of the incredible raptors that live above us, we will have 3-5 ambassador birds (education birds) at each talk. Learn about their habits, their amazing adaptations, their diets, and their role in Montana’s ecosystems.
