Intro to Bozeman, Montana

Lots of hiking but little blogging; the last month has been a big transition for me! My job with The Nature Conservancy in Nebraska ended and I’ve moved to Bozeman to work for Montana State University Extension as a Natural Resources Educator. Bozeman is a fascinating place. The surrounding area is undeniably beautiful, but this landscape has helped drive the population skyward in the last few decades.  Drawn by a recreation paradise, more and more people are moving to the area, fueling a steady explosion of new homes and subdivisions. On one hand, I admire Bozeman for conserving rather than exploiting it’s natural resources. On the other, it’s clear that this model will still drastically change Bozeman. It’s going to be a fascinating place to live, and certainly a beautiful one.

It’s incredible to live in a place where bordered by this. I could bike to this spot from my house in 15 minutes.
