Education > Montana WILD Scheduling a Meeting Room

Unfortunately, we will not be accepting any more meeting room requests for the dates September 10 – November 15 and April 15 – June 12 during the hours of 8 a.m – 3 p.m. These dates and times need to remain open and available for school and youth groups.
