Healthy environment, economy go hand in hand


I came to Montana as a working tourist in 1972 — drawn by a summer job in Yellowstone. It took a while, but I found a way to make a life here. In Montana we've got big mountains, big rivers, big wildlife and that big sky. Thousands of businesses, like mine, depend on these spectacular natural assets. The recently released America's Great Outdoors (AGO) Report lays out a practical plan for protecting these things; it's nice to see Interior Secretary Salazar and other leaders in Washington investing in our natural capital.
