The Montana Forest Collaboration Network (MFCN) is convening its 7th Annual Workshop
titled, “BUILDING ON SUCCESS” in Missoula, Montana, November 17-18, 2022 at the Hilton
Garden Inn, Missoula, MT. 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,’” says 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.”
Collaborative groups have been favorably seen by the public–especially among lawmakers and
agencies seeking resolution of forest management issues. The ability to communicate and
compromise results in better projects and promotes consensus support. The November
Workshop’s theme, “BUILDING ON SUCCESS,” specifically addresses some of the issues involved.
The two-day workshop will present examples of actual collaborative projects along with expert
panel discussions.
The Montana Forest Collaboration Network (MFCN) assists collaboration in forest and grassland
restoration, conservation and resource utilization for the benefit of all. The November 17-18
Workshop is open to the public. Registration fee is $25, students, legislators and county
commissioners fee waived.
