About

The Miistakis Institute believes that Alberta needs a comprehensive database of private land conservation, one that is designed and overseen by the holders of that data – Alberta’s private land conservation community. As a first step to that goal, Miistakis is going to convene a workshop of Alberta’s land trusts and conservancies to discuss several key questions that would need to be addressed before any database creation effort could take place. After these questions are discussed, Miistakis will create a summary report for the land trust / conservancy community, one that will include a proposal for creating such a database. After they review that report, we will put a simple question to them – should we proceed with that plan?
