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.
Our week-long camps engage children in the study of the natural world. Camps are packed with hands-on activities, unique learning opportunities, and field trips to local natural areas. Programs are available for children ages 3 years through high school.
