The Montana Audubon Center turns 10-years-old this year, and the Yellowstone River Parks Association is celebrating this decade of conservation and education facility on Norm Schoenthal Island from 3 – 6 p.m. on July 20. The event is free and open to the public.

The center opened in 2009, built from a desire to get children and families outside to learn about the animals, plants, and ecosystems of the area. Montana Audubon Center opened in October with support from the Montana Audubon, the Yellowstone River Parks Association, Yellowstone Valley Audubon Society, and others and now provides education programs to more than 20,000 visitors each year.
