What you read makes a difference

One of the things we all love about the American West is its abundant and unique flora and fauna. And we are especially intrigued by the complex science behind the miraculous scenery, not to mention curious about how we humans can mitigate our impact on the wild Western world.

That's where High Country News comes in, because what you read does make a difference. For 45 years, HCN has reported on the most important issues facing the American West and, in doing so, sought to inform and inspire readers to act on its behalf.

And so, to further inspire you, we're making this special subscription offer:

We'll include this 18-by-24 inch quality, full-color poster by artist Bryce Gladfelter, FREE with any order! ($22 value)
