Come join the Glacier Institute for the Owls of the Mission Valley course.
Montana boasts the largest number of breeding owl species of any state, from the massive great horned owl to the miniature pygmy owl. Join Denver Holt, a celebrated owl expert, to learn about the habitats, adaptations for silent flight, hunting, breeding, and the life histories of these impressive creatures.
Our field excursions will involve short hikes through level, but brushy, terrain into owl habitat to investigate snags and look for nests. Bring a sack lunch for the first day.
We recommend staying at the Ninepipes Lodge six miles south of Ronan, MT. Please call (406) 644-2588 to make a reservation.
