Yellowstone to Yukon Large Scale Conservation: Exploring Challenges, Perspectives, and Opportunities in the Yellowstone to Yukon Case

April 30 – May 2, 2004

Co-sponsors: Woodcock Foundation, Kendall Foundation, Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, The Northern Rockies Conservation Cooperative

This workshop brought together the best minds working on large-scale conservation issues, using the example of the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative in the Rocky Mountains, one of the highest profile, most referenced conservation efforts on the planet. Nearly two dozen leaders of environmental organizations from Canada and the U.S. spent two days assessing progress in the Y2Y initiative, and identifying what more needed to occur if large-scale conservation is to have a successful long-term effect. The workshop employed the Q method and was facilitated by Steve Brown of Kent State University and Kimberly Byrd of the University of Minnesota.
