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 an 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.
