Diversity, equity and inclusion are foundational cornerstones of successful work in the region and the Roundtable seeks to provide the space and opportunities to facilitate open discussions around complex management issues. These practices are what have allowed for deep engagement on challenging issues, and has positioned the Roundtable as a leader in collaborative conservation efforts.
The Roundtable on the Crown of the Continent’s mission is to connect people to sustain and enhance culture, community and conservation across 18 million-acres of public and private lands in the Northern Rockies. The Roundtable envisions a socially and ecologically healthy Crown landscape and since 2009, has developed diverse and enduring partnerships with local communities, agencies, Tribes and First Nations.
Large landscape conservation efforts hold the potential of being more economically efficient, more inclusive in their decision-making and governance structures, and more likely to achieve lasting and meaningful conservation outcomes for the benefit of people and nature than current, piecemeal efforts.
