Past 2019 programs


Winter Field Ecology

mar 22-24, 2019

Learn about the adaptations wildlife species in the Swan Valley use to survive the cold winter months of NW Montana! Through a mix of informal lecture and plenty of time in the field, we will explore the conditions faced by plants, birds, and animals in the Swan and investigate the various strategies for survival used by species who call this area home.


ANIMAL TRACKS & SIGN

Jan 26, Mar 9, april 13 2019


Enhance your ability to observe and correctly interpret the subtle signs that our elusive wildlife species leave behind. Participants will learn how to recognize animals by track, scat, feeding behavior, gait pattern, habitat selection, marking behavior, and other sign in the winter landscape.
