Summer Employee, Katie Boland, Says Goodbye

I would just like to extend a thank you to the Montana Community Foundation for supporting my position within Travelers for Open Land this summer.  I can't thank them enough for supporting the opportunity of a lifetime and giving me the chance to help support TFOL.  Unfortunately my time at TFOL is done due to school starting again.  This was the perfect way to spend the summer before my senior year at Montana State University! In just nine weeks, I was able to visit over 50 businesses in 19 different towns across Montana.  Through reengaging these businesses with the program, we hope to jump start this program and make sure that 2012 is the best year yet!  I also would like to thank all of the businesses I met with as well as all of the supporters of TFOL that took the time to sit down with me and talk about the program.  This program is just in it's third year, but I truly believe that Travelers for Open Land has already done such great things for this state and will only continue to do so.  Thanks again to everyone that supports this program!

Trumpeter Swans Return to Madison Valley

Trumpeter swans are back in the Madison Valley. The Trust for Public Land and the Montana Land Reliance are among the groups that made this possible. http://www.bozemandailychronicle.com/news/wildlife/article_a488139a-e75f-11e1-a69c-0019bb2963f4.html
