Contacts - Northern Rockies Program
The Sonoran Institute’s Northern Rockies Program represents an enduring commitment to the rich resources of the Northern Rockies – its land, people, and communities. Based in Bozeman, Montana, our work is based upon the idea that communities make better decisions about their future when they have accurate, compelling information and meaningfully engage their citizens. We work with community partners to shape a better future for the region – one of healthy, lively communities with resilient and strong economies surrounded by working farms and ranches and fish and wildlife habitat.

This video is about choices. Through interviews with developers, architects, elected officials, realtors, conservationists, community leaders and other voices from around the West, we explore why choices matter when it comes to building thriving communities in today's economy and how, looking forward, we can make wise choices about the future.
