Investigating problems and crafting solutions

Finding global warming solutions. Extreme weather events lead to loss of life and billions of dollars in economic damage. What’s more, scientists predict that global warming could increase the frequency of such events in the future. Our report, “Global Warming and Extreme Weather,” shined a light on what could become “the new normal” if we fail to avert the worst effects of global warming.


Educating the public and making our voices heard

Preserving our wild forests. More than 50 million acres of America’s national forests, including parts of Beaverhead-Deerlodge, still remain untouched and unspoiled. When our forests were threatened by logging and new roads, our research and education helped win a temporary halt on destructive activity on millions of acres of America’s most pristine forests.
