A clump of grass stands tall out on the range. Its myriad stems rattle and sway together in the wind.

I spent a day at the Hamilton Middle School judging the 7th and 8th grade students’ science projects.  We had a posse of judges, but we were still no match for the volume of projects that we held up against our rubric.  There was a mixed bag earth science section, a chemistry section, a biology section, and a physics section.  With Newton’s Laws and the Scientific Method in mind and rubric and pencil in hand, I waded through the aisles of poster boards and kids ranging from three to six feet tall talking about their physics projects.

If you’ve ever investigated conservation careers in the West, it probably seems like all the full-time positions are next to impossible to land (no pun intended). Openings will always be competitive, but there is a silver lining.

If you toss out the term alien invasion in Montana, you’re likely to be met with a few cocked-eyed stares.

The Gates of the Mountains is a very historical area for Montana. It was a major obstetrical for the Lewis and Clark expedition as well as the location of a very deadly fire known as the Mann Gulch Fire of 1949.

When you see a yellow flower, blowing in the wind; you see time.

Into the Backcountry

The backcountry. Back in the country, back from the country, the back of the country. An ambiguous term, to be sure, but it is out there. Somewhere, with a buffer zone belt of National Forest land surrounding it.
