About the Center for Rural Affairs News

Why I Support the Center

I'm Doug Crabtree. My wife Anna and I own and operate a certified organic dryland crop farm just south of the Canadian border in Hill County, Montana. We first worked with the Center back in the 90’s when trying to make a connection to start farming through the Land Link program.

Intern Louie Brings the Power

We extend a big welcome to Louie Nelsen, our new energy policy intern. Louie, fresh from the Nebraska Senate campaign, is a Wayne State College graduate and a Norfolk, Nebraska native.

He’ll spend his time doing research for our clean energy transmission database, penning outreach material related to clean energy, and organizing around transmission issues on a regional level.

We’re excited to have him on board. You can reach him at lucasn@cfra.org.
