About the event

Join the Denny Olson of the Flathead Audubon and Whitefish Legacy Partners on a quiet morning of exploration into the lives of local birds while learning the basics of birding.

Denny Olson (Doc Wild) has been teaching nature for 46 years in the north woods and mountain west. From scientific beginnings studying Common Loons, he forged an unlikely union between science, humor, and drama, and established a reputation as an innovative performer and educator. He did an NBC Montana “News from the Woods” program for five years as Doc Wild. He’s become more of a semi-retired home-body recently, working as the Flathead Audubon Conservation Educator and teaching about 60 hiking/natural history/birding classes in Glacier National Park each year. And, he can whistle/call over 150 bird songs!

We will meet at the Smith Lake Trailhead at 8am. Please bring your binoculars and favorite birding book if you have them, otherwise we will have plenty basic binocluars to spare and some books to share.
