Mountain Grassland Journal is an educational film about grasslands in
the Rocky Mountains by Ken Furrow of Missoula, Montana. The film
examines the native biodiversity (including bees) and community it
supports, as well as local history.
It raises important questions about future sustainability, and how to manage food production in the region in a manner that benefits people, wildlife and the native environment.
It's great that there are people like this, committed to raising awareness of such issues!
By Ken Furrow:
The mountain valleys and foothills within the Rocky Mountains are rich in culture and biodiversity but face rapid change as human populations grow and the climate changes.
of the elements I am investigating within these grasslands, is the role
of wild native bees. I want to explore and document the role these
beautiful creatures have in pollination of native plants and
Concerns over population declines in
native bees will be also discussed. I plan on spending enormous amounts
of time in the grasslands as this winter ends, filming as many species
of bees as possible.
I have an active campaign with trailers, sample updates and a longer project description. These samples have native pollinators in them.
