Our 2014 Bird Festival is coming to the spectacular Gallatin Valley! Get ready for this highly anticipated annual event, co-hosted by Montana Audubon and Sacajawea Audubon Society. The festival is sure to please as Sacajawea Audubon kicks off Friday with light hors d’oeuvres and an evening program starting at 4:30pm. The rest of the weekend is filled with a diversity of expertly guided field trips, Saturday’s Keynote Address by John Marzluff, Ph.D (co-hosted by the Gallatin National Forest), and Saturday’s dynamic presentations for all of you bird enthusiasts out there!
Saturday and Sunday Field Trips
There will be dozens of Saturday and Sunday morning field trips that will surely fill up quick. Each trip will be leaving the GranTree at 6:00am, and on Saturday will return by noon leaving room for presentations and the keynote address. Return times will vary on Sunday so be sure to read the descriptions closely.
John Marzluff will give the keynote address, Gifts of the Crow, a foray into what he describes as millions of years of cultural co-evolution between humans and crows. In addition to Dr. Marzluff’s presentation, there will be various presentation topics including Montana’s osprey and toxins, bird migration in the Middle East, and many more.
