Life in the West means being a part of the land
in ways that preserve what you love about it.


Preserving Montana

Life in the West means being a part of the land in ways that preserve what you first loved about it—the scenic beauty, the unscarred open spaces, the wildlife, the natural resources. This deeply held value has led to the formation of many conservation-oriented organizations throughout the Gallatin Valley and the state of Montana. Chapters of national conservation groups thrive here as well. All are meant to help residents to understand and participate in their stewardship of one of the world's most beautiful places, living in ways that are sustainable— that is, non-disruptive and healthy for all involved—for many lifetimes to come.
