Harper Kaufman is a Senior at the University of Montana. She is majoring in Religious Studies and minoring in Climate Change Studies. She grew up in the mountains of western Colorado and spent two years after high school at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon. Her blooming environmental concerns drove her to move to Missoula in August 2011. Once in Missoula, she fell in love with the surrounding wilderness areas, farmlands, national parks, ecosystems, and wildlife. The Climate Change Studies program stood out as an excellent option for her to learn ways to help protect her new home and the world we live in.
