Great Plains Conservation Network

Nearly four months ago, I first had the opportunity to listen in on a virtual meeting of the Great Plains Conservation Network (GPCN) as a new Conservation Specialist with Alberta Wilderness Association. There, I had the pleasure of meeting a group of people strongly dedicated to the conservation of native prairie and our grasslands. It was inspiring and challenging, especially as I learned about all the involvement (and acronyms) of different people, projects and groups across the Great Plains.

A healthy relationship to the wilderness is not in the least incompatible with civilized living. Indeed, I believe it to be an indispensable condition thereof; that no man is truly civilized unless he is involved in and cares for the wilderness.
