MOHF CLASS OF 2020

MONTANA’S 2020 OUTDOOR HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES ANNOUNCED – Virtual Ceremony Set for December 5 at 6:30 p.m.

The Montana Outdoor Hall of Fame (MOHF) announced today its class of inductees for 2020:

 

  • Stewart Monroe Brandborg
  • Bruce Farling
  • John & Carol Gibson
  • George Bird Grinnell
  • Hal Harper
  • Dale Harris
  • Gayle Joslin
  • Bob Kiesling
  • Paul Roos
  • Gene Sentz
  • Richard Vincent
  • Vince Yannone

 

“It is a remarkable list of individuals whose accomplishments span a lifetime of keeping watch over Montana’s natural wonders,” said Thomas Baumeister, executive director of the Montana Outdoor Hall of Fame.

 

Earlier in the year, a diverse review committee selected the 13 inductees from a record number of 53 candidates nominated by the public. The 2020 class of Montana Outdoor Hall of Famers–the fourth since 2014–will be honored during a virtual banquet on December 5th.

 

The MHOF was created to honor individuals, both living and posthumously, who made lasting contributions to the restoration and conservation of Montana’s wild animals, places, and rivers. The awards also capture the stories of these conservation heroes to enhance public awareness of Montana’s conservation history and inspire others to do their part to keep this place special.

 

“The Hall of Fame inductees cover a range of personalities who worked in the public and private sectors, and more times than not on their own, to advance what could be termed Montana’s conservation consciousness,” said Baumeister.

 

Please mark your calendar for the virtual ceremony on December 5th. For more information and to register for the FREE event below or contact Thomas Baumeister (406) 431-4326 or mtoutdoorhalloffame@gmail.com

 

We are currently preparing biographies of the inductees which will be made available to the public by November 15, 2020.

 

We look forward to having you join us virtually to celebrate and induct this year’s outstanding class of conservation heroes.
