About Missoula, Montana

Missoula is a city in the U.S. state of Montana and is the county seat of Missoula County. It is located along the Clark Fork River near its confluences with the Bitterroot and Blackfoot Rivers in western Montana and at the convergence of five mountain ranges, thus is often described as the “hub of five valleys”. More information about Montana at:

iLRN 2018 will be purposefully situated in this relatively remote area near wilderness and great natural beauty. Here we will immerse in the natural environment and cultural heritage: Freshwater alpine lakes in the woods amongst towering mountain panoramas wild with bison, bears and huckleberries provides a setting for our immersive journey. Native and immigrant cultures there have deep, rich histories and a vibrant modern context upon which to weave our immersive stories.
