Join The Montana Land Reliance, Prickly Pear Land Trust, and The Nature Conservancy for a free community screening of “On the Shoulders of Giants.”
Produced by Bozeman filmmaker and photographer Eric Ian and the Montana Association of Land Trusts, this film marks the 40th anniversary of the state’s first conservation easement in 1976. Since then, landowners have partnered with land trusts and agencies to conserve 2.4 million acres of private land in the state.
Montana has long been recognized as a national leader in both the quality and quantity of private land conservation, and the film’s photography and interviews capture Montana’s breathtaking landscape together with the diverse economic, recreational, agricultural, wildlife and lifestyle contributions of open land to Montana and Montanans.
Learn about private land conservation from the personal experience of Scott and Tyrrell Hibbard of Sieben Livestock Company, and from the Executive Director of The Montana Association of Land Trusts, Glenn Marx.
Refreshments will be available for purchase.
