A conference for people who care about nature and conservation, Gathering Partners brings together people from all corners of Minnesota to learn about our state's natural resources. Join us for a host of great sessions on wildlife, phenology, invasive species, sustainability and more!
Conference sessions will be virtual this year, but we are finalizing plans for over a dozen guided field trips for people interested in making a trip to the North Shore. Due to Covid-19 safety protocols, participants will need to arrange their own transportation, food and lodging if choosing to attend field trips this year.
This year we’re honored to welcome keynote speaker Parker McMullen Bushman. Parker is the Colorado State University Director of Extension for the City and County of Denver, as well as a passionate voice for equity and inclusion in conservation and the outdoors. She works with environmental organizations to aid them in building culturally diverse and culturally competent organizations that are representative of the populations that they hope to reach and serve.
There will not be a silent auction this year, but we will be back with great items in 2022!
