A group of Montana state agencies and conservation organizations is seeking nominations for the second round of inductees to the Montana Outdoor Hall of Fame.
The MOHOF honors individuals who have contributed to the restoration and conservation of Montana’s fish, wildlife, and other outdoor amenities.
“Montana’s Outdoor Hall of Fame recognizes Montana’s historical and contemporary conservation leaders,” said Montana Governor Steve Bullock. “We need to capture and share the important stories of the men and women who’ve championed Montana’s outdoor heritage.”
Nominees can include people from all walks of life who reflect Montana’s diverse tradition of resource conservation and stewardship.
Participants in the effort include Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, the Montana Historical Society, Montana’s Outdoor Legacy Foundation, the Montana Wildlife Federation, the Montana Wilderness Association, Montana Trout Unlimited, the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, and the Cinnabar Foundation.
The inaugural MOHOF class was formally inducted last year and included: Granville Stuart, Theodore Roosevelt, Charlie M. Russell, Lee Metcalf, Don Aldrich, Bud Moore, Thurman Trosper, Doris Milner, Cecil Garland, Gerry Jennings, Ron Marcoux, and Chris Marchion. MOHOF inductees are archived at the Montana Historical Society in Helena.
The deadline for nominations is Dec.31. For more information and a nominee application (pdf) form visit the Montana Outdoor Legacy Foundation website at www.mtoutdoorlegacy.org. Click “Projects,” then click “Montana Outdoor Hall of Fame.”
