The Flathead Valley is a place of abundant beauty and opportunities to experience the wonders of Nature, from Glacier Park to downtown Kalispell. Flathead Audubon’s mission is to help people of all ages make powerful connections to this beautiful place we live in, through learning about birds, nature and conservation.

For Educators

bissell science day 2015Flathead Audubon’s education program provides  educational materials, student field trips, training opportunities and entertaining programs by experts on birds, nature and conservation to help you teach about these subjects. We make it fun with the many Learning Kits and materials available for your use free of charge.  Check out our list of Kits and see what might work in your classroom.  We now have lighthearted but very educational videos and narrated PowerPoints on our Flathead Audubon Society YouTube channel, and a thorough Bird Education series of four units with field trips, for middle school students.  We can tailor programs for public schools and homeschoolers alike. See details on our http://Free Teacher Resources page.

For Families

5 people at kiosk LWWe also offer programs that are family-friendly, to broaden your knowledge of the natural resources in the beautiful valley that we all share.  Check in on our event calendar regularly to see what’s coming next.  We offer events all over the valley, and all throughout the year.  Come on a family snowshoe walk, or celebrate Family Forestry Expo or the Birds of Prey Festival with us.  Our highly educational monthly public presentations (September through May) on the second Monday evening of the month are done by many experts in bird, conservation, and wildlife areas. They are open to everyone, in a beautiful room at the Flathead Valley United Way complex, Door # 26.

For Adults

In September, the Birds of Prey Festival at Lone Pine State Park is not just for kids.
