11th Annual Crown of Continent Managers’ Forum
Contact: Denise German, 406-888-5838
The 2012 Crown Manager's Forum will be held March 19-20 at the Lethbridge Lodge in Lethbridge, Alberta. The theme of this year's forum is Tribes and First Nations in the Crown of the Continent. The public is encouraged to attend all or part of the forum.
Working in partnership with the Tribes and First Nations, the Crown Managers Partnership created this year's forum to focus on their connection to the Crown of the Continent. The goal of the forum is to bring together the public and environmental land managers across the Crown of the Continent ecosystem to gain and share diverse perspectives from Tribal and First Nations natural and cultural resource managers, educators, land-use planners and others. .
The Blackfoot Confederacy, Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, and Ktunaxa have called the Crown of the Continent home for thousands of years. Presently, Tribes and First Nations use the land for both traditional and non‐traditional uses, but face a multitude of challenges balancing economic development, cultural preservation and sustainable natural resources management.
The Crown Managers Partnership is a voluntary multi‐jurisdictional, trans-boundary partnership formed in 2001 by a collection of agencies seeking to demonstrate leadership in addressing the environmental management challenges in
Registration is required. A nominal, pro-rated fee will be charged for partial attendance. Please visit www.crownmanagers.org to register, and for more information about the Crown Managers Partnership.
