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.

Always looking for a challenge, Pangaea River Rafting's future owners Brooke and David Lawrence set out on a 4,000-mile cross-country bike ride years ago. But tackling that endeavor only increased the duo's thirst for more. After years guiding rafting expeditions along the Clark Fork River near Missoula, Montana, they decided the most exciting challenge would be to start their own rafting company. So, in 1989, they bought a small company by the name of Pangaea Expeditions, which they later renamed Pangaea River Rafting. During that time they also got married, fittingly alongside the river.

Over the course of more than 20 years, Brooke and David have developed a series of programs that highlight the area's tourist attractions as well as draw locals out into their surrounding habitat. They direct rafting ventures boasting wine tastings, happy hours, bird watching, team building, and catfish cuddling.
