 Recharge, reinvigorate, and reconnect at the 2022 WCCN Confluence! 

WHERE: Chico Hot Springs Resort and Day Spa 163 Chico Road Pray, Montana 59065 WHEN: Monday Sept. 19 to Wednesday Sept. 21, 2022 

Confluence 2022 will address the interests and needs of collaborative conservation groups and capitalize on the collective wisdom, creativity, and inspiration that draws all of us to the practice of collaborative conservation. We will focus on three key collaborative conservation topics:

(1) watersheds,

(2) public policy, and

(3) cross-cultural collaboration

Registration will open June 1, 2022

Confluence 2022 is perfect for conservation practitioners, academics, students, and volunteers from across the Western US who are experienced or interested in collaboration as a key element of their work. We will take a deep look at Paradise Valley, Montana and use it as a lens to learn about collaborative conservation throughout the West.

 “Montana is a landscape made for stories, whether you’re in the prairies of the east or the crags of the west. Everything is so big—the sky, the mountains, the wind-swept flatlands—it sinks into you, it shapes your body and your dreams.”

– Christopher Paolini
