The Estes Park area’s proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park—one of the most visited and studied protected areas on the planet—is the perfect laboratory and stage in which to address these issues. By making connections and building relationships between diverse stakeholders, the Center strives to establish systems-based solutions for common management policies and promote conservation efforts. (Regional conferences will take place every other year; international conferences take place on off years to increase global capacity for conservation.)

These conferences combine information from diverse resources to develop database frameworks through strategic global partnerships. The conferences also help develop research strategies, and disseminate plans for the public and youth programs. Fellowship opportunities for the conferences will be available to teachers and students through an application process.
