Elk NetworkPublic Invited to Natural Resource Management Workshop

General | November 6, 2018

Want to learn more about natural resource management in Montana? Want to see how different groups and organizations work together to accomplish that vital work?

The Montana Forest Collaboration Network (MFCN) is convening its 3rd Annual Workshop titled, “COMMUNICATING OUR COLLABORATIVE STORIES” in Kalispell, Montana on November 14-15, 2018, at the Hilton Garden Inn. MFCN is again bringing together Montana collaborative and interest groups focused on natural resource management and engaging with state and federal agencies.

“The workshop is a cross-section of interests, from conservation and the environment, industry, landowners and in some cases, government–that all have the same interest of ‘we need to get something done,’” said Tim Love, MFCN coordinator. “It’s very important that we find solutions to the protracted and acrimonious debate over management of our public natural resources.”

“RMEF is pleased to help support the third annual workshop of the Montana Forest Collaboration Coalition,” said Blake Henning, RMEF chief conservation officer. “We believe the workshop as well as the overall work of the network will continue to lead to enhanced forest management on our public lands.”

The MFCN assists collaboration in forest and grassland restoration, conservation and resource utilization for the benefit of all. 

The workshop will present examples of actual collaborative projects along with expert panel discussions. It is open to the public. Registration fee is $20 but student fees will be waived.
