Wild Wings in Choteau Montana, Celebrate the Spring Snow Geese Migrations!

The arrival of snow geese at Freezout Lake is a springtime ritual rivaled by few outdoor experiences. Snow geese stop here to rest and refuel as they migrate from their wintering areas in central California to their nesting colonies in the Canadian arctic.  Freezout Lake is Montana’s primary snow goose staging area, a place where as many as 300,000 snow geese and 10,000 tundra swans gather and rest before flying onward. In Spring, the snow geese head for Alberta and central Saskatchewan in Canada. There they mass with hundreds of thousands of other snow geese from Texas and other Gulf Coast States. In a series of shorter flights, the geese then make their way to nesting grounds on the wind swept, extreme northwest Arctic coast of Canada.

Stage Stop Inn and Dropstone Outfitting are working together to bring you the 1st Annual Wild Wings weekend celebration, March 22 – 24, 2019.
