About Science Montana
Montana is singular in its connection to science. The state's rare natural resources such as Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, massive free-flowing river systems and large fossil beds represent unique ecosystems that draw interest from visitors, students and scientists from around the world. While much of the world holds a fascination with Montana’s natural resources, Montanans themselves are often unaware of the amazing research happening in their backyard, on their backyard.
