Founder and President
Lou Bruno is a retired school teacher and professional naturalist. He’s lived in the East Glacier area for nearly 40 years. He currently lives out of East Glacier with his partner, Bill, at a place he calls “Heaven on Earth.” The oil and gas issues concerning the Badger-Two Medicine thrust him into the environmental fray 30 years ago and he’s been involved ever since.

Donna Caruso Hirst
Membership Chair and Weed Project Coordinator
Originally from back East, Donna has had the pleasure of living along Badger Creek east of Heart Butte for 33 years. She and her husband raised their three children, as well as sheep, cows, pigs and chickens, along the Creek. Summers found Donna and her family hiking, camping and fishing in the Badger-Two Medicine. The Badger remains a vital part of her life on so many different levels and in so many different ways.
Jane Holland moved to East Glacier Park in 1995. She loves the mountains, hiking, skiing, anything outdoors, and saving the wild lands!
John has been concerned about the Badger-Two Medicine since the first oil leases were allotted during the Reagan era as a charter member of the GTMA. His involvement as a teacher/school counselor on the Blackfeet Reservation has afforded him opportunities to interact with the people and the land.
Resident of East Glacier Park, MT. Father, friend, professional outdoor photographer, lover of wild places, and adventure. It’s about the journey. “Trails are for hikers. I’m an explorer.”
Greg is a resident of East Glacier Park and is passionate about the wild country and wildlife of the Badger-Two Medicine. His major interest is in the conservation of large carnivores (Grizzly Bears and Wolves) in the Badger -Two Medicine country through long-term habitat preservation.
Gina grew up in East Glacier Park. The Badger-Two Medicine has been her backyard playground for as long as she can remember. As kids, she and her siblings would “explore” as far into the backcountry as they could get in a day. As an adult, she enjoys hiking, skiing, and hunting there. She is passionate about protecting this great landscape.
Beth and her family have lived in East Glacier Park for over 20 years. She feels very strongly that it’s important to “protect what we love,” and for her that includes the pristine wild lands remaining in the Crown of the Continent. Beth is very grateful to be part of the Glacier-Two Medicine Alliance and its mission to secure permanent protection for the Badger Two Medicine.
