Karen Reeves and Doug Chadwick

 

As a budding wildlife biologist in the 1970s, Doug Chadwick, cut his teeth by studying mountain goats in the high country of the northern Swan, documenting how valuable the mountains are for mountain goats, and other species. Today, he is internationally known as a writer for National Geographic. Doug and Karen, of Whitefish, still enjoy knowing the Swan range is there for people and wildlife alike. “We both feel that if we can’t keep the very ridges and summits free of motorized traffic, engine noise, and accompanying disturbances, where on the Swans’ mountainsides are we supposed to go to get away from the hubbub and hurry of the world below?” they say.
