Friends of Hyalite is excited to unveil our new logo and website! After nine years we decided it was time to give the community an image that they could associate with the Friends of Hyalite community and efforts. We hope that you agree, that the new logo not only captures an iconic Hyalite scene but also communicates a sense of place and the important work that Friends of Hyalite accomplishes with your support. We hope that you when you see the logo that you think conserve, preserve, sustain, support and most of all, enjoy.
We are thrilled about our new website too. We’ve been working for months on content and it is our hope that the new site will contain everything the community might want to know about Hyalite with an easy-to-navigate, mobile-friendly design. As you scroll through you’ll see that there is information on current and past projects, recreation activities, facility rentals, and more. We will keep adding to the content so check back frequently!
On the new website, recreational opportunities are grouped by season – summer and winter – and identified by simple icons. Each recreation page contains information to get visitors started on a given activity and links or suggestions of where to go to learn more. As we continue to develop content and build out the website, we hope that eventually www.hyalite.org will become the go to spot for all things Hyalite – a digital guidebook of sorts.
You can learn about more than just recreation on the Friends of Hyalite website too. Friends of Hyalite is involved in a variety of stewardship and fundraising projects that directly benefit Hyalite Canyon and our website is the best place to find out information on what’s going on and how you can get involved. For example, our annual fall Clean-Up Day is scheduled for October 18. You can learn more about how to volunteer for this project on the Clean Up Days page.
Last but not least, the Donate page on the Friends of Hyalite website is a must-visit for anybody who recreates in Hyalite Canyon. By supporting Friends of Hyalite you are helping to ensure that we can continue to help the Forest Service maintain access to, and take care of, Bozeman’s favorite backyard.
