Montana Geographic Alliance


The Montana Geographic Alliance provides professional development, K-12 educational resources, and strategic policy work aimed at enhancing the geo-literacy of Montana students.

What is Geo-Literacy?

Geo-literacy is the ability to combine:

  • Understanding human and natural systems
  • Geographic reasoning, and
  • Systematic decision-making,

to make far-reaching decisions in real-world contexts. It is an essential part of a 21st century education and citizenship.
