 The spring edition of Montana Field Notes, a University of Montana e-publication filled with stunning photography, can be found online at

Montana Field Notes focuses on the diverse landscapes, ecology, history and culture of Big Sky Country and the important work being done by the University statewide.

The latest edition offers stories titled “Montana East of the Mountains,” “Keeping up with the College of Forestry and Conservation” and “The Lubrecht Experimental Forest.” It also features an article by former UM President George Dennison about how to rejuvenate the middle class and a book review of a work that describes Montana’s major mountain peaks.

Two editions of Montana Field Notes are published each academic year.

The publication is produced by Rick Graetz, a UM geography faculty member, and Jerry Fetz, former dean of UM’s College of Arts and Sciences and Davidson Honors College, with assistance from various writers and photographers.

Graetz and Fetz also created UM’s popular Crown of the Continent e-magazine (, focused on the Glacier National Park region. The success of that initiative prompted them to create a publication that covers all regions of the state.
