Landmark is ASC’s groundbreaking project to provide “boots on the ground” support for the American Prairie Reserve management team. Wildlife survey crews consist of skilled outdoors men and women who live and work on Montana’s northern Great Plains, collecting data that informs APR’s conservation management decisions.

Warning: This time lapse is addictive. 

In 72 hours, Landmark volunteer Morgan Cardiff filmed northern lights flashing like neon piano keys across the heavens, a mind-blowing storm light show, and bison flooding the prairie at sunrise. This is a must watch.
