High Country News
High Country News leads the nation in our coverage of the land, water and wildlife, and of conservation and climate change, in the Western United States. Our journalists also provide unique, insightful coverage of the West’s diverse people and communities, from Indigenous people to immigrants, and from small towns to cities and suburbs. We seek stories with broad regional relevance that touch on the intersections of human lives and the natural world. We elevate the voices of the disempowered and hold those in power to account. We endeavor to strip away myth and stereotype to reveal the realities of the Western U.S., and to illuminate the possibilities of a more just and sustainable future.
