Canyon Wren by Tom Forwood

Montana is blessed with a great variety of habitats. We basically have everything you can find at our latitude besides high diversity deciduous forest and marine habitats. This provides us with fantastic bird diversity and Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park offers a small slice of this diversity in a small area. Join Park Assistant Manager and long time Naturalist Tom Forwood at our April 9th program as he shares some of the park's hidden nooks and crannies and the uniqueness of Montana's oldest state park.
Tom has been an avid naturalist his entire life and a die hard birder forabout a decade. He worked for 10 years as a Park Ranger with Montana State Parks constantly learning about the birds of Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park and beyond. Today Tom is the assistant park manager at Lewis & Clark Caverns and an eBird reviewer for 3 regions. He compiles 2 Christmas Bird Counts and is a member of the Montana Bird Records Committee. Tom truly enjoys sharing what he has learned with others and looks to learn from others about the world of birds at every tern (turn), and can never pass up a bad nature pun.
Sacajawea Audubon Society programs are free and open to the public. We meet the 2nd Monday of each month, September through May, at Hope Lutheran Church. Join us for a social at 6:30 p.m.
