"I recently had the good fortune to spend some time out in the field. In June, I visited Baggs, Wyoming with the group Partners for Conservation (PFC) for their annual Private Lands Partners Day. This group grew out of the successful partnership in the Blackfoot Valley of Montana and has expanded to include others from across the country who share an interest in community-based conservation. Focusing on “conservation through conversation,” PFC is interested in collaborative conservation partnerships in working landscapes. At this years’ gathering, they showcased local partnerships in the Little Snake River Valley. A great day in the field was followed with discussions – sharing experiences about successes that keep working landscapes working and native species healthy. One thing I learned from this group is how much we can get done together when we focus on those goals we have in common!" - Noreen Walsh, Prairies to Peaks: Mountain-Prairie Region newsletter.
