Community Events:

Bird Banding at the Confluence

When: June, July and August

Where: The Rock Creek Confluence east side trail

For anyone looking to get up close and personal with our native feathered friends, look no further than the Confluence this summer! We've partnered with the University of Montana's Bird Ecology Lab to have a bird banding station at the Confluence for a seventh year of science, community engagement and fun. Members of the public, of all ages, are invited to the research station at either 7:30am or 9:00am on specific days throughout the summer. Click here for more information and the 2022 schedule.
