The Montana Wildlife Center rehabilitates orphaned wildlife for the purpose of release back to the wild, while offering visitors opportunities to learn about wildlife and the natural world in a community facility specifically designed for conservation education.
The Wildlife Center is NOT open to the public.
Montana supports a wide range of wildlife and their habitats. One of FWP's more challenging responsibilities is caring for Montana's orphan wildlife. In the early 1990's, FWP and Foundation for Animals (formerly The Mikal Kellner Foundation for Animals), the Montana FWP Foundation, and the Helena National Forest began working on developing a new, state-of-the-art facility that would give orphan animals a second chance at being wild.
