Owner description: The mission of the Montana Natural History Center (MNHC) is to promote and cultivate the understanding, appreciation and stewardship of nature through education. MNHC offers numerous programs for children, including week-long summer outdoor discovery day camps for pre-K through 5th grade, weekly pre-school programs, Saturday Kids' Activities, and Center Visits. For adults there are occasional evening programs including Naturalist Trivia and Evening with a Naturalist, as well as Naturalist Field Days on a variety of topics, from raptor migration to lichens to Glacial Lake Missoula. MNHC also offers several Montana Master Naturalist certification courses throughout the year. MNHC has a newly-renovated Exhibit Center filled with local animal specimens, information on Montana's ecosystems, a diverse fossil display, and an exhibit on Glacial Lake Missoula. There is an interactive Kids' Discovery Room, an Environmental Education Library with books for both children and adults, a small native plant garden, and a Nature Adventure Garden for outdoor play. MNHC also provides a tri-annual publication, Montana Naturalist magazine, free to members and the public, with feature articles about the flora and fauna of Montana, their ecology, habitats and conservation issues.
