Craig and Conni French Receive Leopold Award

     Conni and Craig French, ranchers in north central Montana, have received the 2020 Montana Leopold Conservation Award, and among the ways they are recognized is a really well done five minute video available on The Nature Conservancy in Montana’s Facebook page (Oct. 5. Post). Conni is a TNC Montana Trustee.

     The video opens with some dramatic drone footage of the French’s C Lazy J Ranch near Malta, and both Conni  and Craig do an excellent job of explaining their vision of stewardship and holistic ranch management.

     The Leopold Conservation Award is one of the country’s most prestigious conservation awards. Congratulations to the French family!
