The NFPA sent representatives to last year’s annual Roundtable on the Crown of the Continent in Polson. By all reports, it was a good experience. This year’s event is scheduled for September 27-28 in Fernie, BC.
The Roundtable has a pretty broad reach, including people, communities and organizations with a wide range of interests. Here’s what they have to say about themselves:
The Crown of the Continent is a remarkable place. Spanning the 49th parallel and anchored by Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, it has been the home of Native Americans and First Nations for thousands of years. Today, the stunning scenery, vast wilderness areas, iconic wildlife, and diverse recreational opportunities attract visitors from throughout the world. These amenities support a ring [of] communities around the Crown. Working landscapes help knit together the natural and cultural fabric of this region.
The Roundtable is an ongoing forum to bring together people who care about this special place . . .
