The beginning of the cooperation between Association ECOSYSTEM and Montana State University (and CreekFarm Education Associates later) was in 1997 when 14 Russian educators (right) visited Bozeman, Montana State in the framework of the project of United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Montana State University, Bozeman The official institution that received our group was Montana State University (left) and the person who was responsible for the group reception was Michael Brody - the professor of Education Department of MSU.
Montana State University and Bozeman itself are situated on the East slope of the Rocky Mountains at 1500 meters height above sea level. Surrounding mountains are covered by spruce forests and the famous Yellowstone National Park is nearby.
Our group was collected from all over the Russia. There were teachers and education administrators from Far East (Vladivostok, Habarovsk, Chita), Baikal region (Irkutsk and Ulan-Ude), Eastern Siberia (Kemerovo), Western Siberia (Novosibirsk), Ural region (Ekaterinburg, Nijniy Tagil) and European region (Moscow and Saint Petersburg).
Some of our lessons were conducted out-door, in the nearest to Bozeman mountains and forests.
Out-door lesson near Bozeman
Rafting near Bozeman Approximately 50% of our lessons were lead in the town and suburbs, like university, college, schools, sewage disposal plant and dump. Another 50% of our work we spent in nature: during mountaineer, nature excursions and river rafting (left). We also visited Yellowstone National Park twice.
In other words, our schedule was very saturate and live was very active ! Our leader Michael prepared excellent program for us, when two days of wearisome work in the city changed by two days of nature trip.
The most wild place we visited during our stay in Bozeman was "Turtle Camp", situated far away from civilization, high in the Rocky Mountains.
Road troubles in the Rocky Mountains
We are all friends We spent three weeks in the US and these days were unforgettable ! Many of us become friends, and even one couple was formed !
After we return to Russia we collect all our group participants again half a year later. We all gathered at  ECOSYSTEM Field Center to exchange by our new experience and the possibilities of its adaptation in Russia.
