We have a dream...

Some day, MSU Extension will publish a scenic computer wallpaper photo from every county and reservation in Montana…

MSU Extension staff and supporters are helping to build a collection of Montana scenes to help tell the story of MSU Extension's reach across our beautiful state. MSU Extension specialists, agents, support staff and friends of Extension are invited to send original, high resolution (minimum 1280x720 pixels) scenic photos taken in their county or reservation. (The photos are published, free, via this MSU Extension Web site, so contributors must own the copyright and be willing to donate it for public enjoyment and education.) Send photo, county or reservation name, scene location, and your photographer credit with your written permission to publish, to Extension Communications. (Photos are added first come, first serve, with additional photos for each county or reservation added only as time allows. Photos smaller than 1280x720 may not be useable.)
