Summer Education Series

The Montana Raptor Conservation Center invites you to our Summer Education Series! Join us in our beautiful outdoor amphitheater to learn about raptors in an hour-long, biology-based education program. Each week meet some of the incredible raptors that live above us. We will have 3-4 ambassador birds (education birds) at each talk. Learn about their habits, their amazing adaptations, their diets, and their role in Montana’s ecosystems.

This event is free to the public thanks to the incredible generosity of the Green family. Donations are encouraged to help us ‘Feed the Birds!’ MRCC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, contributions are tax deductible.
