High Country News is an excellent journal that reports on the events and challenges facing conservation and protection of the environment in the West. Published by a group of committed people in a small town on the western slope of the Colorado Rockies, HCN is a great way to stay informed on the issues facing all of us that are concerned with the fate of our threatened wildlands, rangelands, wildlife, and way of life of our rural communities.
For thirty years, High Country News has reported on the West's natural resources, public lands, wildlife and changing communities. HCN's award-winning bi-weekly coverage describes the West as it is and points the way to what it can be. Founded in 1970 by Wyoming rancher, teacher, and biologist, Tom Bell, High Country News has stayed loyal to its mission of informing and inspiring people to act on behalf of the West's natural environment and human communities It is HCN's goal to help the West achieve the dream of the late Wallace Stegner, who envisioned a "society to match the scenery."
