Listen to this testimonial: “I have known Bob France for over three decades. I have strong feeling about the individual: he is interesting, with a fascinating set of experiences and background; he is completely honest in all of his dealings concerning all things natural resources; he is dedicated to doing right by the land, the people and animals who live on the land, and by his family. Mr. France has influenced thousands of private and public individuals; he has educated people from school kids to multiple generation landowners—and everyone in between. Mr. France believes in what he is doing and therefore he is compelling in the message he delivers. And Finally, Bob France is fun. He has a quick wit, a lively sense of enjoyment, and a ready laugh. Everyone in his presence quickly realizes that he/she is in the company of a person who cares about the important things and who can find reasons to smile about life.”
