Registration is now open for the Third Annual Conference of the Roundtable on the Crown of the Continent.
This year, the conference will be held on Sept. 27-28, 2012, in beautiful Fernie, B.C.
Everyone interested in the people, communities, and landscapes of the region is invited to join tribal, government, nonprofit, education, business, and local leaders for two days of conversations, presentations and celebrations focused on the past, present, and future of the magnificent Crown of the Continent region.
The purpose of the Roundtable is to connect people to sustain and enhance culture, community, and conservation in the Crown of the Continent. The annual conference serves as one of the primary vehicles to achieve this purpose.
The first conference (2010) focused largely on conservation initiatives, while the second conference (2011) focused on the cultural fabric within the region.
The organizing theme for the 3rd annual conference is "caring for communities" in the face of change.
The conference offers opportunities for participants to:
- Build relationships, exchange information, and foster a sense of regional identity;
- Understand key economic trends and drivers shaping communities in the Crown of the Continent – including cities and towns as well as watersheds and working lands; and
- Learn how the Roundtable’s adaptive management initiative is responding to community needs and interests.
