Anne Dahl

I see people starting to listen to each other again. There’s more willingness to tolerate. We’ve learned to listen, to respect each other.

 - Anne Dahl, speaking about the success of the ad hoc committee that would ultimately help create the foundation for SVC.

 
 

Anne was instrumental in the formation of the Swan Citizens Ad Hoc Committee in 1990. Generously giving of her time and talent, she would become the first executive director of Swan Ecosystem Center, serving in that role from 1997-2013. Anne’s words remain equally true today, as people on both sides of conservation issues continue to work toward a common goal of protecting the Swan’s rural character and natural beauty while ensuring the health of the landscape we all cherish.  Anne was also a prolific writer, publishing in Glacier Valley Northwest Montana magazine, Forest World and the Seeley-Swan Pathfinder, where Anne received 1st place from the Montana Newspaper Association for Best Column Writing for her contributions to the Pathfinder’s “Eye on the Environment” column.

Anne’s words remain equally true today, as people on both sides of conservation issues continue to work toward a common goal of protecting the Swan’s rural character and natural beauty while ensuring the health of the landscape we all cherish.
