Montana Wild To Host Antelope Migration Program


Wed Jan 02 10:48:00 MST 2013

Montana Wild will host an evening program on northeastern Montana’s amazing migratory pronghorn antelope on Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.

The one-hour program will be delivered by Andrew Jakes, a PhD candidate at the University of Calgary. Jakes will reveal cutting-edge research on one antelope herd's 500-mile round trip migration and offer a new perspective on an animal Montanans often take for granted as we drive down Montana’s highways. The antelope, for instance, is the only species left in its family and its closest living relatives are giraffes.

Montana Wild is located at 2668 Broadwater Ave., next to Spring Meadow Lake State Park off Highway 12 West. For more information call Montana Wild at 406-444-9944.
