The summer 2012 issue of the Crown of the Continent e-magazine has been released and can be found online at http://issuu.com/crown-continent/docs/crown-summer-2012.
Articles discuss Mel Ruder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the June 1964 floods and the Scapegoat Wilderness celebrating 40 years. The issue also includes an excerpt and images from “Julius Seyler and the Blackfeet: An Impressionist at Glacier Park” by Bill Farr, as well as stunning western photography and a record of regional weather extremes.
The region called the Crown of the Continent encompasses Glacier National Park and spans the Continental Divide from the Elk River headwaters and Crowsnest Pass in Canada to Rogers Pass and the Blackfoot River drainage in Montana.
The University of Montana launched the Crown of the Continent Initiative to provide an educational catalyst for collaboration between UM and Glacier National Park. The initiative continues to grow and now includes many groups, organizations, agencies and institutions beyond the park in Montana, Alberta and British Columbia.
The initiative publishes three color-filled e-magazines each year, providing up-to-date information about issues driving decisions and research in the Crown. The magazines cover everything from the physical and historical geography of the Crown to interesting scientific research on the region’s wildlife, climate, rivers, glaciers and more.
