Edmonton… Sustainable Resource Development parliamentary assistant Evan Berger will participate in a panel discussion about landscape conservation in the Crown of the Continent ecosystem, September 22-23 in Polson, Montana.
Berger will join a variety of public and private interests charged with the stewardship of the Crown of the Continent, an ecosystem covering about 44,000 square kilometres, from Alberta’s Kananaskis Country to northern Montana.
“It is important to take advantage of opportunities to update our partners in the Crown about Alberta’s ongoing conservation work through the Land-use Framework and other initiatives,” said Berger.
Berger will appear on a panel with representatives of the U.S. National Park Service and the Montana department of Natural Resources and Conservation, among others, to provide an update about the South Saskatchewan Regional Plan and offer insights about how to link regional and national policy initiatives to the Crown.
Berger has represented Alberta at previous Crown of the Continent events.
The estimated cost of the trip, including travel, accommodation and meals, is $1,100.
The Alberta government is working to build a better Alberta by fostering economic growth, strengthening our health and education systems, investing in infrastructure, supporting safe and strong communities and ensuring a clean and healthy environment.
