Everybody has had to adapt in 2020 and figure out new ways of doing things thanks to the pandemic. The Montana Natural History Center in Missoula is no exception - normally around this time of the year, they'd be gearing up for their annual banquet and auction - it's the biggest and most important fundraiser they hold every year. And of course, it can't exactly happen this year.

Sure, that's a bummer, but rather than just call it a year, the Natural History Center is still working to give people something cool and raise some donations while they're at it. October 5th through 9th will be "Montana Nature Week," a way to connect with people from the comfort of their own homes.

Basically, here's how it'll work - starting on the 5th, they'll be releasing "fun, interactive videos that showcase what MNHC does best, nature education." They'll have nature journaling, a sketching class, a behind-the-scenes look at their collections, and more. And then, starting on Wednesday the 7th, they'll be live-streaming different special presentations starting at 7 PM each evening. They'll be showing off a brand new fossil exhibit, hold a nature storytelling night, and feature a Q&A with the naturalists of the Montana Natural History Center.

Sounds pretty cool, right? Definitely a great way to help support a vital source of local knowledge. You can get all the info (and make a donation, too) at their website. Will you be checking this out?
