Conference on Cooperative Conservation Invites Citizen Conservation Stories
The 2005 White House Conference on Cooperative Conservation (www.conservation.ceq.gov) convenes on August 29, 2005, in St. Louis, Missouri. A key part of the conference is to learn what Americans are doing within their communities and in cooperation with others to steward and conserve the nation's natural resources -and to share the lessons, information, and resources that are critical to everyone's conservation success. To that end, the Conference invites all Americans - including individual citizens, non-profit organizations, civic groups, schools, businesses, and government agencies to contribute their conservation project stories. Visit the Cooperative Conservation America website (www.cooperativeconservationamerica.org) to enter your project story into the database. Summaries of all projects entered at the web site by 5 pm EST July 22, 2005, will be part of the conference record and will be included in Faces and Places of Cooperative Conservation, a publication of the White House Conference on Cooperative Conservation.
