A COMMITMENT TO EDUCATION THAT SPANS 30 YEARS

EDUCATION. EXPLORATION. FUN. ALL IN ONE.

 The Owl Research Institute reaches the community through field workshops, training programs, and lectures.  People of all sorts participate and interact with our work in the field and in the classroom.

YOUNGSTERS


It’s never too early to begin learning about science and that’s why we’ve donated hours of visitation to elementary schools.  We give kids an introduction to owls, their adaptations, and some of our research.  We have fun and usually leave a classroom full of happy, hooting children.  
 

HIGH SCHOOLERS

During a morning in the classroom and an afternoon in the field, students learn to create research questions, to design methods, and to develop field techniques. They also discuss ecology, conservation, and management. Schools throughout western Montana participate in our annual program, and some for more than a decade.

UNIVERSITIES AND COMMUNITY COLLEGES


Our year-round research programs offer students the opportunity to observe and participate in local projects. We also offer limited yearly internships.

ADULTS


To provide adults with opportunities for education, we work with local civic groups, such as Flathead Valley Community College’s Elderhostel Program, the Montana Natural History Museum, and the Glacier Institute. We focus on raptor identification, raptor ecology, and our owl research programs.
 

VOLUNTEERS


Hundreds of volunteers have helped with ORI’s field studies, assisting with trapping and banding, nest box monitoring, and surveys.
