Our landowner partners

Vital contributors to the Field Station community are the landowners in Montana who have graciously granted us permission to tromp across their fields, streams, hills, and gullies for over 70 years. At our 50th anniversary celebration in 1999, we presented landowners with plaques expressing our appreciation—a small token of gratitude that is very deep indeed.

Towards the end of the summer courses, we have a barbeque at the Field Station for the landowners, families, and friends. At this event, our staff, faculty, and students have the opportunity to thank them personally for all of their support.
