THE team


Lara Birkes has a professional background in public policy and sustainability. She works with businesses to develop their social & environmental impact strategies. This passion is driven by her love of nature. She writes from the perspective of both.


Lara's ties to Montana go back to 1895 when her great, great grandparents homesteaded along the Yellowstone River. Her grandmother grew-up in a log cabin on the family homestead only miles from where she lives now. 


As an outdoor enthusiast, avid skier and mountaineer, away from work you can usually find Lara in the mountains with her Golden Retriever. She calls Paradise Valley, Montana home.‚Äč
