If Montana is the “last best place,” part of the reason is its strong history of conservation carried out by many Montanans, some of whom played large roles in important national policy and legislation to preserve Montana’s wildlife and wild places.

Now, 13 more of those hard workers have been recognized for their efforts by being inducted into the Montana Outdoors Hall of Fame.

“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 Thomas Baumeister, Hall of Fame executive director, in a release.

This year’s inductees were selected from a field of 53 nominees and include four men from western Montana who spent decades fighting for wilderness and for clean streams and wild trout.
