In the drilling sites and "man camps" of North Dakota's oil fields, women can seem like fictional beings.  But you don't really need to look far to find women living and working in the Bakken oil patch. In small towns near drilling rigs, women and teenagers perform essential jobs. Some are native to the region, while others moved there independently or with partners, looking for work. These women keep the towns moving and sometimes even venture onto the oil fields to do a "man's" work.

Amy Cilimburg talks with naturalist and Lolo National Forest Wildlife Interpreter Sue Reel about native bees, the plants they need, why we need pollinators, and the colorful guides Sue developed.

Amy also speaks with Amy Seaman – Amy's colleague at Montana Audubon – about cool birds.
