"There are a lot of reasons why I chose to live in Missoula--a great job, an open, exciting community with lots of art, culture, food and of course local brews. But the most important factor is the natural environment that surrounds and permeates everything Missoula is.
We are lucky to live with such amazing mountains and rivers in our backyard (literally). However, I know that it is not by accident that these lands have been preserved from development and opened to the public. And that is why I am committed to volunteering with Five Valleys Land Trust to protect what I love--these valleys, mountains, rivers, meadows, and streams--for us and future generations."
