Wild Gift Bazaar Saturday, December 13th

Haven’t finished your holiday shopping? Join us on December 13th from 10 am to 4 pm for a great selection of natural history books and gifts. We have 11 local authors who will be selling and signing their books. Confirmed authors include: David Alt, Kate Davis of Raptors of the Rockies, Hank and Carol Fischer, Kerry Foresman, Donna Love, Dorothy Patent, Sherry Ritter, Robin Tawney, Pat Tucker and Bruce Weide from Wild Sentry. We will have readings and presentations throughout the day. Check our website for the schedule and a list of the terrific art and crafts vendors who will be offering their wares. We’ll also have some great raffle items including a wine basket, coffee package, a live Christmas tree, and cut tree from Marchies’ Nursery.

Montana Natural History Center Coffee

Hunter Bay Coffee Roasters will be brewing the new MNHC bird friendly, shade grown, organic, Smithsonian Certified coffee and it really tastes good. We have plenty of 1# packages available at the bazaar for only $10 a pound for MNHC members. You can order the coffee online right now from the Hunter Bay Website and Hunter Bay will donate a portion of the proceeds back to us!
