The mission of the Montana Natural History Center is to promote and cultivate the appreciation, understanding and stewardship of nature through education. MNHC was founded in 1991 by a group of educators who had the vision to create a natural history center as a resource for schools and the public.

Saturday Kids’ Activity
Uncover the nature in the heart of Missoula! Join us for a winter ecology walk in the natural areas and parks near the Montana Natural History Center and the Clark Fork River. We will look for animal tracks and signs, identify resident birds, and view beaver activity. From chickadees, to cottonwoods, to crows, there is plenty of life to observe and investigate right in town! This family oriented walk will begin and end at the Montana Natural History Center. A representative from the National Wildlife Federation will provide tons of information on how you can certify your yard as wildlife habitat or volunteer to improve Missoula’s essential wildlife spaces.
