Montana Nature Photographer Tony Bynum and Science Teacher Stacy Dolderer Dive Deep into the Montana Prairie in Search of Wilderness Characteristics

When Erin Madison, (@GFT_EMadison) outdoor writer for the Great Falls Tribune (@GFTribue) called us to do an interview about the Montana prairie project we worked on recently, we were happy to say yes!  As many of you know, my partner Stacy Dolderer and I spent several months bouncing around the prairie lands of Montana last summer.  It may not sound like much to most of you, but taking on the challenge of  inventorying millions of acres of public lands to find areas that contain wilderness characteristics was to us, an awesome opportunity. Could there be a better project for a full time outdoor, nature, wildlife, and adventure photographer, and Stacy, a science teacher, to undertake? Why we did it, and what we found is contained in this great piece by, Erin Madison, titled (link to full article)  “Beautiful in it’s own way: Photographer, teacher spend a month recording Eastern Montana wonders.”

Here are some additional Montana photographs captured by Tony Bynum along the way.

I hope you enjoy the read as much as we did telling the story!

    It’s interesting to look at the census data over the decades. In Fergus County, the highest population occurred in 1920. Population went down every decade through the 2000 census. I believe in 2010 the population increased by a little over 1% 0 the first time in 90 years. Of course in Garfield County, it’s still going down.

    BTW – The prairie photos are fantastic – that country can be difficult to capture, but as usual, you do it so well!
