Ways to Connect

Butte, Montana, winter 2017.
Nora Saks

Montana is world famous for its pristine natural environment, but it’s also home to America’s largest Superfund site (in Butte) and numerous other wastelands of its industrial past. Over the years, various well-intentioned economic revivalists and snake oil salesmen have proposed solutions to alchemize mine waste into gold - first with the environmental restoration industry, now with bitcoin miners putting out shingles in historic hard rock mining towns. This series of stories will explore the Treasure State’s collapsed pride, and efforts to process its toxic shame and legacy into a new identity and economy.

Spring has hit Western Montana which means that for us here at Montana Public Radio the annual spring pledge drive is on the horizon. We have been busy making preparations for this very busy and very important 9 days for Montana Public Radio, but it takes more than just the staff of MTPR to have a successful and fun pledge week.
