Join Sacajawea Audubon September 9th at 7 p.m. for an interesting program that looks into the future of songbird habitat diversity in Montana.  This presentation by Richard Keigley describes how ungulate browsing is causing declines in songbird habitat diversity, and outlines a role that citizen science can play in habitat conservation.  It begins with a simple method of interpreting habitat trend based on the relationship between plant height and plant age.  The method is used to describe how wild and domestic ungulates are affecting habitat across a broad swath of Montana.  Richard Keigley is a retired Research Ecologist with the National Park Service and the U.S. Geological Survey.  For the past 20 years, he has focused on the development of methods to document changes in habitat due to ungulate browsing.

The Sacajawea Audubon Society meets the second Monday of the month (September through May) at 7:00 p.m., at the Hope Lutheran Church, 2152 W. Graf Street (off of South 19th) in Bozeman. We invite the public to attend our meetings and participate in our field trips, listed here on the chapter's website.
