Communities across the country are losing their newspapers, tearing ahole their civic and democratic fabric – Montana is no different. If notfor Mountain Journal’s innovative, persistent and credible newscoverage, the Yellowstone Region would, at times, be subject tosuperficial and often inaccurate reporting on issues that are vitallyimportant to the ecological health, integrity, and prosperity of thelands, water, and wildlife of the American West. At Mountain Journal, we believe that thoughtful, truthful journalismcan lead to a more informed public, and better public policy. Our effective and equitable platform brings fact-based public servicejournalism to expand community coversations and dialog for thebetterment of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
