In Montana's Centennial Valley, the Taft-Nicholson Center opens minds for life by immersing students in the wild unknown.
It’s 6:30 am, and in the old town of Lakeview, Montana, a bird-watching walk is in order. Long shadows still blanket the dusty former logging road, but the morning sun lights up the porch of a rough-beamed building where a dozen undergraduates have assembled. They wear hats, leggings, long-sleeves, and, even at this hour, ample bug spray. At this time of year, they’ll probably need it all day long.
