“They Have Left a Legacy, and We Stand In Their Presence”

The Montana Land Reliance Success Stories website page  showcases conservation accomplishments, organizational success and landowner stewardship. The farm and ranch stewardship is exemplified by the Gilman family in the Ruby Valley, and a quote from Les Gilman on the MLR website:

“Because our predecessors toiled and labored not only for their present needs but also for what we currently have. They have left us a legacy and we stand in their presence with the responsibility to honor them by being good stewards today and planning for tomorrow.”
