Cross-Border Partnership Recognized

The Heart of the Continent Partnership, a Canadian/American coalition promoting the economic, cultural, and natural health of the lakes, forests and communities along the Ontario/Minnesota border, was honored for its “ongoing effort to promote trans-boundary cooperation and research” at the World Wilderness Congress held in Merida, Mexico last November.

The group passed a resolution of support that commended Heart of the Continent Partnership as “a good example of cross-border collaboration in a region that encompasses not only large tracts of designated wilderness but also large areas of multiple use public land, and towns that rely on these for their economic vitality.”

The complete resolution is available HERE.  The Heart of the Continent Partnership’s announcement about the award is HERE.

“The recognition signals the importance of what Heart of the Continent Partnership is trying to do—create a way for a broad spectrum of organizations to come together to share ideas, share common visions, and find new ways to cooperate across borders, across boundaries, and across attitudes,” Doug Franchot, chair of the Heart of the Continent Partnership steering committee, said of the recognition.
