Every session is full of unique topics that appeal to a wide-range of ages and individual interests. You’ll be taken on a wild ride as you learn about Montana’s wild life- both human and animal, including mountain men, mountain lions, amazing insects and so much more. From ghost towns, gunslingers, gems and geology to dinosaurs, dragonflies and Dutch ovens, there’s something for all to enjoy.

Specific subjects will vary depending upon eNDVR’s current theme, the particular season and student interest.
