UM Publishes Glacier, Yellowstone Region E-Magazine

March 19, 2014

MISSOULA – The University of Montana has published a new e-magazine titled Crown of the Continent and the Greater Yellowstone. Filled with stunning photos and informative stories about the Glacier and Yellowstone park regions, the 78-page magazine is online at

Articles discuss mountain goats, Montana landscapes, land use, a 93-year-old ranger, grizzly bears, explorers, wolves, wilderness and much more, including a book review and art section.

The publication was produced by the UM Crown of the Continent and Greater Yellowstone Initiative, which is co-directed by Jerry Fetz and Rick Graetz. The initiative publishes several color-filled e-magazines each year, providing up-to-date information about issues driving decisions and research in the region. The e-magazines cover everything from the physical and historical geography to scientific research on the region’s wildlife, climate, rivers, geysers and glaciers.

The UM initiative formerly focused on the Glacier region but has expanded its focus to include the Yellowstone area as well. Likewise, the group’s e-magazine now includes information on both the Glacier and Yellowstone regions.

More information about the initiative is online at Current and past e-publications by the initiative are available on the website by clicking on “e-publications.” To receive initiative updates or more information, email Fetz and Graetz at
