This beautiful little town nestled on the banks of Big Spring Creek is a pleasant place to visit and watch birds. During the heat of summer, Lewistown is an oasis on the plains with its numerous shade trees and lush vegetation. Lewistown is named not in honor of Meriwether Lewis, but after the 7th Cavalry Major William Lewis who established Fort Lewis here in 1874, where Frank Day Park is found today. Lewistown is the geographical center of Montana. The headquarters for the C. M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge is located in Lewistown, though the refuge lies about fifty miles to the northeast. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, and helpful general information.
