Camas: The Nature of the West is a non-profit literary journal run by graduate students of the Environmental Studies Program at the University of Montana. Established in 1992, Camas publishes non-fiction, fiction, poetry and photography on nature, place, and culture of the American West. The magazine produces two issues per year.[1]


Camas has been recognized in national magazines such as Utne Reader and High Country News for its unique mixture of personal essays, photos, and poetry related to life in the west with its cohabitation of people and wildlife.[2][3] The magazine was also recognized by the travel magazine Matador Network as the #7 "Magazines, Journals, and Blogs Every Travel Writer Should Know About" in 2009.[citation needed]
