Meeting to Connect Communities, Land

Finding new ways to connect local communities to the public lands near them is the thrust of an upcoming meeting of the Heart of  the Continent Partnership scheduled for February 24-25 in Eveleth, MN.

The theme of the gathering of local community leaders and public land managers is: “How can community leaders develop more effective plans where community economic development and healthy public lands work together?” Organizers hope community leaders, elected officials, business leaders, tourism partners, nonprofit leaders, public land managers, and other interested parties will explore the links between economic development, community vitality and healthy public lands.

The brochure for the meeting can be found HERE.

The meeting is also intended to lay the groundwork for discussion at the Heart of the Continent’s International Community Congress scheduled for October in Thunder Bay, ON and Grand Portage, MN.  There, local community and public land stakeholders will meet to build stronger economic, social, and environmental connections between communities and their neighboring public lands for mutual benefit.

The Heart of the Continent Partnership is a Canadian/American coalition of land managers and local stakeholders working together on cross-border projects that promote the economic, cultural and natural health of the lakes, forests and communities on the Ontario/Minnesota border.
