You Know it’s Spring in Montana When: Baby Animals

The season is a favorite of many, because it serves as a true relief from the long, cold winter that has finally ended. However, in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, spring brings forth a new set of challenges for many species of mothers, who are getting ready to start birthing and rearing the young they have been carrying and nourishing for the past several months.

Big State, Small Towns

Out of the 129 towns and cities that make up Montana, only seven are home to populations that exceed 10,000 people. This means that if you were to pull out a map of Montana and pick a random destination, there's a 95% chance you'd end up in a small town. While seemingly scattered all over the state, several of these quaint towns lie in striking distance from Bozeman, each with their own uniquely charming draws.
