Bring your curiosity and your own naturalist knowledge and join MNHC Naturalist Ser Anderson on a naturalist saunter. We will focus on exploring the changing seasons, making observations, following our curiosity, and learning from each other. Whether you are an experienced naturalist or just starting out, this walk is for you! Everyone has something to learn and knowledge to share.

Kim Williams Trail

Location Info:  Kim Williams Trail is a mostly flat trail stretching between the Clark Fork River to the north and Mt. Sentinel to the south. The riparian habitat along the trail hosts a wide range of plants and birds.  The main trail follows the bed of an old train track and is accessible for strollers, walkers, and wheelchairs when the snow isn’t too deep.

Directions: Head towards the University of Montana campus.  Take 6th Street east into the Adams Center Parking Lot.  Current construction will have you detour up to 5th Street to drive the last block up to the corner of the campus recreation building.  Turn north into Parking Lot M.  The group will gather at the north end of the parking lot.  Parking on the UM campus requires a permit.  You can purchase hourly parking ($1.75/hour) from a kiosk in Parking Lot M.  A full day pass ($4) can be purchased online or at the University Police, University Center Bookstore or Campus Recreation.  Alternatively, park at the Eastgate Center and walk across the pedestrian bridge to meet the group.

Group size is capped at 10 people.

Registration is required.
