The mission of the Avian Science Center is to promote ecological awareness and informed decision making through the collection, synthesis, and dissemination of science-based information on western birds.
The Board of Regents of The University of Montana approved the establishment of the Avian Science Center in the spring of 2004. We work in collaboration with numerous partners both within the University and around the region.
In support of our mission, we:
- Promote and conduct high caliber, basic and applied avian research;
- Disseminate research and monitoring results through traditional publication routes as well as through avenues that are more rapid and effective—a web-based interface, workshops, field demonstrations, and teacher training programs;
- Provide and enhance educational opportunities related to bird research and monitoring;
- Use our teaching and communication tools to promote informed land management, wise land stewardship practices, and a sustainable future.
