2018 Upper Yellowstone Watershed Workshop
The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation is pleased to invite you to participate in the 2018 Upper Yellowstone Watershed Workshop-Examining the Confluence of Past Lessons & Future Needs, to be held September 4-7, 2018, at the West Creek Ranch in Emigrant, Montana. This workshop will convene an invited group of landowners, businesses, scientists, and land management leaders to examine what we know about the watershed and challenge ourselves to chart an action agenda for its future.
The workshop’s agenda will focus on water supply and water use, land use and economics, the challenges of climate and drought, and the practical lessons to be drawn from available science and practice. Participants will work to establish baseline agreement on what we do and don't know about the water budget of the watershed, and establish an action agenda for where we go from here.
The workshop will be held at the newly designed West Creek Ranch. While participating in this workshop, all lodging, meals, and activities at the West Creek Ranch will be covered by The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation.
The goal of this workshop, and others convened at West Creek Ranch, is to invite diverse, nonpartisan thought leaders together to address natural resources issues of mutual importance. Amid the natural beauty of Montana’s Paradise Valley, participants will convene in an atmosphere that is impartial yet provocative, polite while critical, practical yet imaginative, and above all open, respectful, and collaborative. The outcomes are intended to reach beyond the bounds of the face-to-face meeting itself, to provoke action, identify common ground, facilitate partnerships, and lead to meaningful solutions.
