SolarBee to the rescue

The Spanish Peaks Mountain Club maintains two storage ponds for reclaimed water that are critical to the function of Big Sky’s sewer system. One of them—known as the Hole 10 Pond—has experienced some minor odor problems caused by anoxic water. 

      Anoxic means it is depleted of dissolved oxygen.

What kind of bird is this?

"Was that a pine cone?"

This little bird made his or her leap into the world at the Big Sky Community Park disc golf course as players finished up a hole. The fledgling was confused for a pine cone until it started hopping away, off the course and into the safety of the long grass.

Loud and local

Scavenger, a local heavy metal band, got heads banging at Choppers on Thursday, July 26 after Americana duo Shovels & Ropes played Music in the Mountains. Many people hear the terms “screamo” or “heavy metal” and immediately search elsewhere for musical entertainment.

Kelly Hilovsky and Jeff Butler greet volunteers at the Big Sky Community Park for a good, old-fashioned river cleanup sponsored by United by Blue, a Philadelphia-based clothing company that sent the two organizers to states across the U.S. Big Sky marked their western-most stop on the Bluemovement Tour. They’re now off to the Midwest.

United by our rivers

When one thinks of community trash cleanups, the words Philadelphia and clothing company don’t readily come to mind. But on Monday, July 16, United by Blue—an eco-conscious apparel company based in Philly—made a stop in Big Sky during a two-month journey across the U.S. cleaning up waterways along the way.

OBIT—Karen Crawford

Karen Crawford (known by her many loving nicknames: “Grandma Kay,” “Ethel” and “KK”) passed away of natural causes with her husband and daughters by her side on June 26, 2018. She went peacefully at home looking out onto the golf course where she built her life.
