Montana Audubon Conservation Education Center was founded in 1976, with the goal to conserve natural habitats to help native species flourish and ensure that the skies over future generations would continue to be diversely populated. Today, the center continues this work by connecting local community members with nature and teaching them how to protect it. Montana Audubon's recreational and educational programs, such as afterschool lessons and an Earth Day celebration, employ entertaining efforts to engage the public with the issue of wildlife conservation. The center's 72,000-square-mile swath on the Yellowstone River Basin also serves as an outdoor classroom to expose youth to local ecosystems including riparian zones, grasslands, and forests, and staffers place special focus on bringing underserved populations of young people to learn at the center.
Venture Theatre enraptures art aficionados with an eclectic mix of drama, comedy, improv, and children's fare, as well as educational programs and opportunities for area youth to take to the stage. In A Kid's Life, director Sarah Butts steers a cast of dozens through the tale of an electromagnetic blitzkrieg and the subsequent technological fallout. Lacking the garish gizmos that clog modern existence, a group of wayward whippersnappers find refuge in a kindly pair of grandparents who show them there's more to life than laptops, cell phones, and electronic butter churners. A raucous production packed with music, adventure, and a marked lack of skull-clutching monologues, A Kid's Life aims to thrill thespians and theatrical tenderfoots alike with the power of live performance.

Sumit Banerjee—the namesake of Sumits Yoga—certified each instructor at the studio to teach his blend of Bikram and Vinyasa yoga. His approach incorporates static poses, energetic music, and temperatures ranging from 100 to 105 degrees. In addition to expelling toxins from the body, the heat keeps muscles limber for safe stretching. Regular practice can foster increased energy, improved focus, and weight loss. On Fridays, instead of taking a baseball bat to their work computers, participants celebrate the end of the week with an ice-cold popsicle after class.
