As more people make Montana their home, traditional ranches and farms are being divided into smaller acreage lots. Lives & Landscapes Magazine is published by MSU Extension three times per year for those landowners, and anyone else looking for information and education on the natural resource issues they face as they care for their land.

MSU Extension is pleased to offer the digital version of Lives & Landscapes at no charge. Search past articles below. Each article is available in both PDF and HTML formats. In addition, print subscriptions are available for a small shipping & handling fee. Subscribe today to ensure that you don’t miss an issue!
