New photos showcase our ever-unfolding history

To celebrate Northern Plains 50th Anniversary, we assembled a photography exhibition to highlight the people, places, and events that helped shape our organizational history. We displayed 68 photographs and detailed captions at Home on the Range, our Billings office. These iconic images show how powerful and effective everyday people are when they stand together to protect and improve their communities.

While working on this project, we soon realized that our history is so expansive that we could continue adding to this exhibition year after year. We also decided to make these images available online. As a result, members dedicated to preserving our legacy identified 18 new photographs last year to add to this collection. 

You can view the entire photo collection at our new online gallery by visiting: NorthernPlains.org/History-Photos
