Bring your curiosity and your own naturalist knowledge and join MNHC Naturalist Ser Anderson on a naturalist saunter. We will focus on exploring the changing seasons, making observations, following our curiosity, and learning from each other. Whether you are an experienced naturalist or just starting out, this walk is for you! Everyone has something to learn and knowledge to share.
Location Info: Greenough Park is part of the City of Missoula’s Parks system. Located along the lower reaches of Rattlesnake Creek, the park is largely a natural area, featuring a riparian habitat. A partially-paved, partially-gravel trail forms a loop through most of the park’s 42 acres. The trail is broad and flat enough to accommodate strollers, walkers, and wheelchairs, though the trail noticeably climbs a hill and may get icy and harder to navigate in winter.
Directions: Head up the Rattlesnake, crossing under I-90. If on Madison Street, take the slight right onto Greenough Drive. Turn right onto Vine St immediately after driving under I-90 and take the first left onto Monroe St. Drive north to the parking lot near the intersection of Monroe and Locust streets. If on Van Buren St, turn west onto Locust St and drive two blocks to the parking lot.
Group size is capped at 10 people.
Registration is required.
