Bronya joined the organizing team in early 2021. Bronya earned a degree in Environmental Policy from Colby College in Maine. While there, she was involved in organizations throughout Maine focused on regenerative agriculture and local food, and conducted research on stakeholder dynamics in determining the future of the coal industry in Montana. This research is what first brought her to Montana, and she fell for the grasslands, mountains, and Northern Plains. After graduating, she apprenticed on an organic farm in Western Maine, before making her way to Billings. Bronya staffs the Lewistown affiliate, Central Montana Resource Council, the Bull Mountains affiliate, Bull Mountain Land Alliance, and the Rosebud County affiliate, Rosebud Protective Association. Bronya also leads the Coal Task Force. Email: bronya@northernplains.org
