Welcome to our Montana Field Guides.
These guides and this website are a collaborative effort between the
Montana Natural Heritage Program and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
These guides provide information on the identification, distribution, status,
and ecology of Montana's animals, plants, lichens, and biological communities.
You can find individual species or habitats by hierarchical drill downs or simple searches.
New features include the ability to view galleries of photos to assist with species identification
and the ability to download custom field guides as PDF files.
