This event is part of the Southwest Manitoba Priority Place Conservation Planning Initiative.
This is a joint initiative led by the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) in partnership with communities, government and conservation organizations in the Southwest Manitoba Priority Place (see map). We will be developing a shared plan to coordinate action to conserve, protect and recover endangered and threatened species and the land and waters they rely on. The intent is to create a community-driven initiative that focuses on partnership. Over the coming months, a series of workshops will be held to gain input and perspective from communities across southwest Manitoba.
