Volunteer

We depend on our 100+ volunteers to assist us in providing great natural history programs for children and adults in the Missoula community and beyond. We have myriad volunteer opportunities, including working with our naturalists in 4th & 5th grade classrooms with the Visiting Naturalist in the Schools program, helping with our Fall Celebration & Auction, leading field trips, working in our Native Plant Garden–and many more!

Donate

MNHC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and your donations are tax deductible. Help us connect people of all ages with nature! Thank you for your support.

If interested in donating, consider planned giving. Planned gifts may offer the best way to maximize a donation while at the same time addressing personal and family concerns. Such gifts are important to the long-term future of MNHC and may be made as an alternative to or in conjunction with an outright gift.

Become a Master Naturalist

The Montana Master Naturalist Program is designed for adults who want to stoke their curiosity and deepen their knowledge of the natural world. We offer a range of programs to fit the needs of a diverse community, but all the classes share a common goal of providing participants with the skills to interpret the Montana landscape.

Internships

MNHC internships offer an excellent opportunity to gain practical experience in natural history education as part of a professional non-profit organization. Participating interns will acquire essential teaching and program development skills through involvement in outdoor and environmental education and community events. Interns will have the flexibility to work in programs of specific interest to them and will be able to emphasize skills they wish to further develop. Credit is available (though interns do not have to be students).
