Montana Naturalist is a full-color, 20-page, educational magazine published three times a year by the Montana Natural History Center and distributed free to members, school groups and the community at large. Along with a calendar of events and MNHC news, the magazine contains feature articles about the flora and fauna of Montana, their ecology, habitats and conservation issues. There are also short articles about Montana people and organizations engaged in nature education/conservation, space for photography and creative writing, and a Get Outside Guide aimed at younger readers and families.
Content for Montana Naturalist is generated by MNHC staff, but we welcome (in fact, depend on) contributions from the community. If you have an idea or a piece of writing, artwork or photography that you would like us to consider, please email it to adejong [at] montananaturalist.org. You can mail inquiries or submissions to Allison De Jong, MNHC, 120 Hickory St., Missoula, MT 59801; or call 406.327.0405.
