Take the Long View


Standing at an overlook above the Reserve’s Dry Fork region, an inspiring view captures the timelessness and endless possibilities of the Montana prairie. Summer rains flooded the landscape with a rolling sea of green and wildflowers. Newly arrived migratory birds join newborn fawns to create a swell of activity and life. This is a place of intangible optimism, where long-billed curlews fly overhead and their cries echo across the ocean of grass.
