Beauties of the Bison Range

May 14 @ 6:30 AM 3:30 PM

Join Darcy Thomas to savor the beauties of the Bison Range in Moiese. The Bison Range is home to many birds such as Bald and Golden Eagles, Lewis’s Woodpeckers, Red-naped Sapsuckers, Willow Flycatchers, Lazuli Buntings, and Grasshopper Sparrows. There is also wonderful native vegetation and many animals including Bison, White-tail and Mule deer, Elk, pronghorn, bear and coyote.

We plan to drive over Red Sleep Mountain stopping to hike along the Bitterroot Trail and then follow Prairie Drive back to the Visitor Center where we will learn about the Bison Range Restoration and the CSKT. We will likely take West Loop Drive as well and finish the day either walking the nature trail at the Visitor Center or at the ponds depending on what the groups wants to do.

This field trip will be limited to four cars and carpooling will be necessary and a maximum of 15 participants. Passengers are asked to pay drivers for mileage and to offset the cost of purchasing a day pass. Each vehicle will need a Bison Range Pass which are $20 for a day pass ($60 for a season pass). Plan to pay drivers $15. Bring binoculars, bear spray, a spotting scope if you have one, lunch, snacks and drinks. There are a couple of restroom stops along the way. To register, contact Darcy at darcy@flatheadaudubon.org. or 406-407-8263.
