On the Shoulders of Giants Film Premiere – Celebrating 40 Years of Conservation

The Flathead Land Trust, Montana Land Reliance and the Vital Ground Foundation present the Northwest Montana premiere of “On the Shoulders of Giants: The Story of Montana Private Land Conservation” Saturday, March 11 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish.

The film is a 21-minute story about the value of conservation to Montana’s landscape, economy and way of life. This premiere marks the 40th anniversary of Montana’s first conservation easement and the state’s four decades of dynamic private land conservation achievement.

Montana has long been recognized as a national leader in both the quality and quantity of private land conservation, and the film’s photography and interviews capture Montana’s landscape together with the diverse economic, recreational, agricultural, wildlife and lifestyle contributions of open land to Montana and Montanans.

Since 1976, Montana landowners have partnered with land trusts and agencies to conserve 2.4 million acres of private land throughout the state.

The event will also include the screening of other short films and presentations about local conservation efforts in the area.

The event is free and open to the public with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. Great Northern Brewery will be serving beer and wine which will be available for purchase.For more information, contact Paul at ptravis@flatheadlandtrust.org or 406-752-8293.
