  • In Northern Rockies: Active Nature, get a collection of lively and euphoric ambiences from the mountains of Montana. Hear the rich diversity of ambiences brimming with wildlife. Hear haunting winnows of Wilson's Snipes and trilling tremolos of Dark-eyed Juncos. Hear wildlife greet the sun in four extended dawn choruses, each ranging from 30 to 50 minutes! This library is packed full of tracks teeming with active flora and fauna from the continental divide of North America and perfectly complements the other Nothern Rockies Series libraries to give you a full picture of these stunning glacial valleys. 
  • Only 25 glaciers (of the 150 in 1850) remain in Glacier National Park and all could melt within 30 years. Hear the sounds of this stunning natural cathedral while the glaciers remain. The ecosystem won’t sound the same when they’re gone.
