  • UM biology Professor Doug Emlen – author of the new children’s book “Beetle Battles: One Scientist’s Journey of Adventure and Discovery” – was featured in a recent edition of the popular “Meateater” podcast by UM alumnus Steven Rinella. The podcast is aptly titled “Teeth, Horns and Claws,” since Emlen studies the evolution of animal weaponry. Check out the program: http://bit.ly/2T8n8NO

  • When there’s a building named after you, sometimes you need to check on it. Yesterday, Emma Lommasson – who at 107 might be the University’s oldest living alum – visited employees working in UM’s Lommasson Center. Emma spent 58 years at UM as a student, teacher, staff member, student adviser and registrar. The building was renamed in her honor in 2001.

    Emma’s quick wit and kind nature inspired generations of students. UM Registrar Joe Hickman said Lommasson's visit was a blessing. “She told us she wanted to check on her building and make sure her favorite office on campus was doing OK.”

  • Did you know ......

    🌳 America's National Wilderness Preservation System includes 803 areas comprising 111,368,221 acres of designated wilderness.
    ⛺️ Montana is home to 15 wilderness areas and one tribal wilderness.
    🏝 The nation's smallest wilderness is Pelican Island Wilderness at just 5.5 acres.
    🗻 Because Alaska contains just over half of America's wilderness, only about 2.7% of the contiguous United States is protected as wilderness.
    🛶 The Boundary Waters Canoe Area is the most frequently visited unit in the National Wilderness Preservation System.

    Next time you're headed into the wilds, plan your trip using the UM Wilderness Institute's database at http://wilderness.net. The site offers maps, regulations, fun facts and more.
