Registration open for the third annual Crown of the Continent conference

Register for the third annual Crown of the Continent conference.

Anyone interested in the past, present and future of the Crown of the Continent is invited to register for the third annual Crown of the Continent conference, titled ‘Pathways to Prosperity: Caring for Communities in the Crown of the Continent.’

The two-day conference, hosted by The University of Montana Center for Natural Resources and Environmental Policy, connects people to sustain and enhance culture, community and conservation in the Crown of the Continent. It will take place Thursday and Friday, September 27 and 28, at the Fernie Mountain Lodge. Registration costs $100 and includes meals.

In the third of a planned series of four roundtable conferences about the region, attendees join tribal, government, nonprofit, education and business leaders for two days of conversation and presentations.

Through workshops, forums and policy dialogues, the conference embraces the 18-million acre region; includes all perspectives and communities; focuses on connecting people, facilitating communication and catalyzing action; supplements other activities; and promotes sustainable communities and landscapes.

The annual conference series was born of the 2009 ‘Roundtable on the Crown of the Continent,’ a forum for organizations and people who care about the region. The first conference in 2010 focuses largely on conservation initiatives, while the second conference in 2011 focused on the cultural fabric within the region.

Roundtable events are organized and convened by the UM Center for Natural Resources and Environmental Policy with the support of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and the Sonoran Institute.
