The Crown Managers Partnership is open to all science and resource management agencies within the Crown of the Continent Region. This includes First Nations/Tribes, Federal agencies and Provincial or State agencies, universities and local governments.
The Crown of the Continent Region is loosely defined by the Rocky Mountain ecoregion from the Bob Marshall wilderness complex in Montana to the Highwood River in Alberta and the Elk Valley in B.C. This boundary is necessarily indistinct, reflective of its ecological rather than political derivation.
Staff involvement is determined by each agency. However, as a principle, the Partnership focuses on senior/middle managers and those technical and professional staff who are managing programs with adjacent jurisdictions.
Partnership responsibilities include:
- Pooling expertise in pursuit of the vision;
- Fostering an understanding and support for the CMP within member agencies;
- Contributing in-kind, financial resources and staff resources in support of the vision and mission of the CMP.
