Landscape & Livelihood immerses students in the landscapes of Western Montana, with attention to the issues surrounding wildlife, watersheds, agriculture, forest lands, and human economies. Our field semester specifically focuses on conservation strategies that transform natural resource challenges into opportunities for sustainability.
