June 27 (Friday) - Wildlife Biology: Birds, Beasts and Buzzers

Birds are colorful and vocal, beasts are furry and fun to watch, and the buzzers pollinate our flowers and plants.

July 17 (Thursday) – The Elements: Earth, Wind, Water and Fire

If you live in the Mission Valley, you can’t get away from the geological forces of Glacial Lake Missoula. Learn about other ways the elements shape our land.

August 7 (Thursday) – Aquatic Life: Fish, Insects and Plants

Let’s get wet and follow the aquatic plants and animals into the ponds and streams. Water is essential to all life and for some living things, it is the place called home.  

Each day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Come Explore during Science and Nature Days at the National Bison Range!

Stations will be set up to learn about plants, animals and ecosystems. Over the lunch hour, a local biologist will be our guest speaker. Bring your own lunch, snacks and water. There will be games and art projects, too. Activities will be outside so dress for the weather. All children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult. Groups welcome. Refuge fees are waived for participants.
