– The Museum of the Rockies at Montana State University has announced the opening of two exhibitions, "Unbridled Spirit: The Photography of Barbara Van Cleve" and "Zoo in You: The Human Microbiome," running from Sept. 30 to Jan. 7, 2024.

Museum members can attend a preview of both exhibits Friday, Sept. 29, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., where they can explore Barbara Van Cleve’s works and delve into the world of the human microbiome before the exhibitions open to the public.

In addition to the new exhibits, the museum will hold "Zoo in You Family Day" on Saturday, Sept. 30, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event is a celebration of the human microbiome and will feature activities, exhibits and educational programs for all ages.

“Unbridled Spirit: The Photography of Barbara Van Cleve” asks visitors to step into the world of beauty and tradition of the American West through the lens of internationally acclaimed photographer Van Cleve, whose connection to ranching began at birth in Montana’s Crazy Mountains at the Lazy K Bar Ranch. Her photography has garnered global recognition and has been featured in over 60 solo exhibitions nationwide and beyond. On display with her photographs will be ranching artifacts from Van Cleve and the museum’s collections.

“Zoo in You: The Human Microbiome” invites visitors to explore the complex world of the human microbiome and to discover who our microbial companions are, where they live, their diversity and how scientists are learning their importance to human health. Produced by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, “Zoo in You” was made possible by a Science Education Partnership Award from the National Institute of Health.

Both exhibitions are included with museum membership or general museum admission.

BCBSMT Contributes $250K in Partnership with National Fitness Campaign to Bring Outdoor Fitness Courts® to Montana

HELENA, MT — Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana (BCBSMT) and National Fitness Campaign are increasing access to fitness and reducing barriers to physical and mental health by collaborating to bring free, outdoor Fitness Courts® to communities across Montana.

BCBSMT is contributing $250,000 in grants to help fund 10 new Fitness Courts across the state. The sites will begin construction as early as fall 2024 with the goal of being available for use in spring 2025.

“Starting physical activity and staying active is at the heart of our physical and mental well-being, and it’s a fundamental driver in our quest to help positively influence Montana’s population health,” said John Doran, Divisional Vice President of External Affairs at BCBSMT. “That’s why we are so grateful for the opportunity to join the National Fitness Campaign to bring free and accessible outdoor physical fitness sites to communities throughout our great state. Together, we can continue our work to make Montana a healthier place to live, work, and play.”

The Fitness Court is the world’s best outdoor gym that lets people use their own body weight to get a complete workout using seven exercise stations. Created with people aged 14 and over and with all abilities in mind, the workouts are adaptable for all fitness levels, allowing participants to move at their own pace. Users may also download the free Fitness Court App which acts as a coach-in-your-pocket and enhances the outdoor gym into a digitally supported wellness experience.

“The National Fitness Campaign is proud to welcome BCBSMT as they join the growing network of leading healthcare partners across the country prioritizing equitable fitness across their state,” said Mitch Menaged, founder of the National Fitness Campaign. “This program will deliver tremendous resources to contribute to the important mission of improving health outcomes as the network of Fitness Courts grows across Montana. We look forward to working with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana to make this campaign a great success.”

Municipalities, schools, and other organizations in Montana can apply for grant funding through National Fitness Campaign to assist in joining the campaign. National Fitness Campaign works with grant recipients to assist in planning, funding, and launching their Fitness Court and community wellness programming.

‘M’ trail to close Oct. 3 for airlift of construction materials

                                                                                                                      Photo: Joey Wishart

BOZEMAN – The iconic “M” on the face of the Bridgers north of Bozeman gets spruced up every fall, with the infill of approximately 4 tons of rock carried up the trail by volunteer hikers and a new coat of white paint applied to the stony surface by Montana State University students.

That annual facelift, “Rockin’ the M,” took place as usual on Sept. 17, but it wasn’t the last work scheduled for the notable Bozeman landmark before winter sets in. The first phase of a projected multi-year “M” improvement effort will commence Tuesday, Oct. 3, when timbers needed to construct a retaining wall at the base of the “M” will be airlifted to the worksite by helicopter.

Kathryn Barker, recreation program manager for the Custer Gallatin National Forest, said the trailhead and trails leading from the “M” parking lot will be closed for safety reasons on Oct. 3 while the airlift, conducted by Central Copters Inc. of Belgrade, is underway.

The chopper will transfer 60 treated timbers, weighing in total about 2 tons, to a worksite near the platform at the base of the “M,” and the public will not be permitted in the area until the helicopter operation is finished.

“We understand the temporary closure is inconvenient for folks, but it will be pretty brief,” Barker said. “The new retaining wall will ultimately bring lasting benefits to the resource and to all the people who love to visit the ‘M.’”

After the timbers have been deposited at the worksite, Montana Conservation Corps and Forest Service trail crews will spend about two weeks building the retaining wall to prevent further erosion of the “M” slope. The parking lot and trails will be open during wall construction, though Barker said signs will inform people of the project and advise caution while work is in progress.

MSU holds a special use monument permit with the U.S. Forest Service, and both agencies are committed to preserving the landmark and enhancing its safety, officials said.

“We recognize that this is an area for public enjoyment and public awareness,” said Chris Pruden, MSU engagement and leadership program manager.

This fall’s work is being funded by MSU Student Success, which will cover the work done by the Montana Conservation Corps and the helicopter. Pruden said he expects that fundraising will take place to finance future efforts.

Both Pruden and Barker said additional infrastructure improvements are being considered and discussed by stakeholder agencies, including, possibly, construction of another retaining wall on the slope beneath the “M” platform, which also has shown signs of erosion.

“This is probably one of many future projects for the ‘M’ area,” Barker said. “We’re looking at the next 100 years of how we manage the resource to be sustainable.”

Pruden added that the “M,” which was built by then-Montana State College students more than 100 years ago, is an important symbol for the university and an important element in the community.

“We want to be leaders in ensuring a future where it has access, is well-kept, and is emblematic of the university,” he said.

Fishing closures during spawning to begin for sections of Big Hole, Ruby, Beaverhead rivers

BOZEMAN – Fishing will close starting Oct. 1 for sections of the Big Hole, Ruby and Beaverhead rivers to protect trout during spawning season.

The Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission adopted emergency fishing regulations in June in response to struggling fish populations in the three rivers. These restrictions limit fall angling during the brown trout spawning season in some stretches of the rivers.

Trout abundances in several areas of the three rivers have steadily declined since 2011 and are at or near historical lows. Meanwhile, fishing pressure in these areas has increased. The emergency fishing regulations aim to be responsive to fish populations in accordance with Montana’s draft statewide fisheries management plan.

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is also beginning new research with Montana State University to better understand and manage trout mortality, recruitment and health.

The current fishing regulations for the three rivers are as follows:

Big Hole River

  • Headwaters to Dickie Bridge
    • Combined trout: five daily and in possession, no size restriction
  • Dickie Bridge to the mouth
    • Open April 1 through Sept. 30
    • Catch and release only
    • Artificial lures and single-pointed hooks only. No treble or double hooks. Anglers may remove treble or double hooks from the lure and replace them with a single hook, or the shanks may be cut off the other hook points to leave a single hook. Lures with multiple hook attachments may still be used but any treble hook must be replaced by a single hook.

Beaverhead River

  • Entire river
    • Catch and release for rainbow trout
    • Brown trout: five fish daily and in possession, all fish must be less than 18 inches, except for Clark Canyon Dam to High Bridge Fishing Access Site (see special regulations below)
    • Artificial lures and single-pointed hooks only. No treble or double hooks. Anglers may remove treble or double hooks from the lure and replace them with a single hook, or the shanks may be cut off the other hook points to leave a single hook. Lures with multiple hook attachments may still be used but any treble hook must be replaced by a single hook.
  • Clark Canyon Dam to Pipe Organ Bridge
    • Open third Saturday in May through Sept. 30

    • Catch and release for trout
  • High Bridge FAS to Henneberry FAS
    • Closed to float fishing by nonresidents and float outfitting on each Saturday from the third Saturday in May through Labor Day

Fall? More like winter in Big Sky

BIG SKY— Fall? More like the first day of winter in Big Sky. Starting on Thursday, snow began to fall in the high alpine, and this morning, the clouds broke to reveal a layer of snow atop Lone Mountain.

The change in weather didn't stop the crews working on Lone Peak Tram construction at 11,166 feet. 

Today is officially the first day of fall, but seasons are colliding in Big Sky. Just 60 days until Big Sky Resort opens for the winter season on Wednesday, November 22 for the resort's 50th anniversary season. 

Let it snow!

Meet Alayna Hutchings from Helena, Montana

Meet Alayna Hutchings from Helena, Montana. At first glance, she is like most seven year old girls. She loves her mom (Kaya) and dad (Danny), and gives her two older brothers a run for their money. Silly, tons of energy, inventive, imaginative and made of sugar and spice and everything nice. She is vibrant, kind and generous and is determined to run her race in life.

On March 13, 2022, Alayna was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Her family was terrified of the news they had received, but Alayna showed no fear. As the days passed, more bad news came; there was nothing that could be done to treat her tumor. It was inoperable. Her parents felt helpless that they could not help their little girl, they continued spending countless hours and days researching doctors and hospitals across the county. They are refusing to give-up. Sometimes all they feel they can do is pray for a solution to this terrible situation. So they do. Every day and every night they pray.

So much time has passed since her initial diagnosis. Alayna's tumor continues to grow, but so has her spirit. She keeps going strong. She remains positive, and determined not to let something like a tumor defeat her. People say that you wouldn't even know that something so life-changing was happening to her. But it is, indeed, changing lives. It is like watching a sleeping giant come to life. Alayna's story, the story of the little girl with the unbreakable spirit, spread like wildfire across the United States. People started calling non-stop from news stations, newspapers, and radio stations. And not knowing how much time she has to fulfill her life-dreams, organizations and business stepped-up to help her do that. The local Lithia car dealership presented Alayna with her dream to visit Hawaii, and sent her and her family to make priceless memories together. Alayna wanted to fly in a helicopter someday, and Billings Flying Service donated a helicopter ride. The West Valley Fire Department in Helena held a raffle/auction to help the family pay for ongoing medical expenses not covered by insurance. As they walked to the tables and saw the hundreds of items that were donated, they were shocked and moved by people's willingness to give. People from as far away as New York City donated. As far as the family is concerned, 'thank you' will never be enough to express their appreciation. Her parents were truly grateful and could not believe the support they were receiving. They didn't realize it at the time, but now they are seeing their prayers being answered.

As the months continue to pass with countless doctor appointments and tests, calls for information and news of her condition, it sometimes felt overwhelming to her parents. But Alayna is still full of spirit and life. A family friend named Clint Branger told Danny that Alayna is an inspiration to him through everything she has been through and he says hearing about Alayna inspires him more every day. Clint thought that maybe that is what her purpose is - to inspire the people around her and even strangers who hear her story too. Clint said that maybe this is her way to show the world that just because you have a tumor and cancer does not mean you have to give up on your dreams and wishes; that if there is the will, there is a way. He pointed out all the people she has touched and made a difference in already. Another great guy named Rob Smets does a morning prayer for Alayna and others every day on Facebook. He tells Danny that Alayna is going to do some great things and maybe this is her calling. They never expected what happened next in Alayna's story.

A month had gone by, and Danny received a phone call from Katrina Mann, and she stated they wanted to donate all the proceeds from the Wild Bill Rodeo to Alayna and crown her Miss West Yellowstone, 2023. Mr. Smets contacted Tres Rios and they offered to make and customize a crown for her, and Prairie Leather Designs and Cowboy Parables are making her a pair of custom chaps. A couple of days later, Warren Johnson, who was just elected into the Cowboy Hall of Fame, reached out and said he was going to donate a horse and a custom pack saddle to an auction for Alayna right after the Gardiner, Montana horse drive that took place on May 27.

Danny states, "As more time goes on, my wife and I are still in disbelief in everybody that has reached out and shown so much kindness and love for a little girl that most don’t even know. As we still look for answers and wonder what the future is for Alayna. We have received more news about her. Alayna has had some brain damage from all the swelling in her brain. She is having a tough time learning at school, but she is not giving up and neither are we."

As life goes on, so do the phone calls for the family. They have been contacted by four major magazines that want to do a story about Alayna. They have said that her story is like a novelty book. You have a little girl in the rodeo world that is battling a tumor, and wants to dedicate her time to helping others around her. They state that she is a remarkable young woman and this is a lesson in power and inspiration and the impact of one courageous soul to travel to so many. They state that they are intrigued by the strength and courage of a little girl that only wants to use her role as Miss West Yellowstone to help and inspire other children with cancer and tumors. Shortly after the magazines reached out, Alayna got her very own professional photographer, Mary Peters. She does photos for the PBR and the NFR. She also takes photos for many magazines such as the Western Horseman Magazine, the Cowgirl Magazine and many others. There have been multiple calls from people wanting to know how they could help and sponsor her. Danny has been in contact with multiple children's hospitals for Alayna to visit other kids that have tumors and cancer; for her to visit them and get a picture with her in her Miss West Yellowstone outfit and be able to give them a stuffed animal, and an autographed picture. But ultimately Alayna wants to show that no matter what you’re going through, you can always achieve your dreams and wishes. And to show that she is just an ordinary girl chasing her dreams, you don’t have to be any more special to achieve your goals, you just have to find your dream and believe in it, and follow it.

So what's next in Alayna's story? Danny said, "Alayna‘s goal is to travel to all states and visit one children’s hospital in each state. She wants to give them hope and to encourage them to find a dream and follow it and not to give up. Another one of her dreams is to be Miss All American Rodeo Queen. As all parents should, we are supporting our child, encouraging her, and letting her know that nothing is impossible. As of right now, our goal is to help our daughter to complete her goals in life. We as parents have concerns about our children’s lives every day, but in this situation, we felt there wasn’t a right or wrong way other than letting her live her life to the fullest. And as a parent, you only get one chance to raise your kids and you try not to make very many mistakes."

"As of right now, Alayna has a busy rest of the summer attending rodeos, parades and children's hospitals and getting photos for magazines and sponsors. Thanks to all of her sponsors, Cinch, All American Ropes, Herring Custom Hats, Lithia Dodge, the main Dodge manufacturers, Cowboy Parables, Prairie Leather Designs, Tiffany Glove Company and Big Sky Printwear and Deaton Chaps. If anyone would like to donate to Alayna‘s cause, it is much appreciated. If you purchase any of her merchandise, a percentage goes back to children with cancer or tumors or other life-changing illnesses. That is what Alayna wants to do."

"I think Alayna‘s life is inspired by two of her favorite songs: 'This Is My Fight Song,' by Rachel Platton, and 'Unstoppable,' by Sia. She hopes one day she can meet them and listen to them sing. Another one of her favorite songs is 'Roar,' by Katy Perry. No one knows what Alayna‘s future is going to be, or when it’s going to be over. But we do know that her story isn't over yet; she has not roared loud enough for the whole world to hear her yet."

The go fund me purpose is to help with traveling expenses and bills

New Paved Parking Lot, Walkway Open at Gallatin County Regional Park

The new paved parking lot and walkway near the dog park at the Gallatin County Regional Park are officially open for use!  

The 43-spot lot was built to serve visitors of the Anderson Dog Park, located off Ferguson Ave. on the west side of the Gallatin County Regional Park in Bozeman.  

The project also includes a new 10-foot-wide paved walkway that runs along Ferguson Ave. between Baxter Lane and Oak Street, and landscaping and irrigation around the lot and the walkway. The walkway connects from Ferguson Ave. to the park’s interior trails. This was requested by the Gallatin Valley Land Trust through a Montana Trail Stewardship Program.

“The parking lot and paved walkway will provide safe public access to this extremely popular part of our park,” said Nick Borzak, Gallatin County Chief of Operations. 

Gallatin County contracted with C K May Excavating in Belgrade for the project. The total cost was about $671,000. The county received a $150,000 Land and Water Conservation Fund grant through Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks to help pay for a portion of the project. Construction took roughly three months to complete. 

While the new parking lot is in the same general area as the Nordic ski trails in the winter, county parks staff are working on creating another connecting route to accommodate.
