Collaborative Solutions


Upcoming Courses

Collaborative learning is our niche, and we are achieving results. Our community capacity workshops on green infrastructure are leading to the establishment of green infrastructure plans, and our tourism assessments are changing communities! By providing an open, welcoming and neutral environment for learning and dialogue, we inspire participants to test new ideas, exchange information, and form lasting partnerships. Upcoming courses are listed below; courses can also be viewed by Training Tracks.

*Team Application Deadline: March 14th!


Community Leaders & Citizens:
  • Do you want to preserve your community's unique character and special places?

Private Landowners and Businesses:
  • Do you want to invigorate economic opportunities in your community and attract new businesses?
  • Do you want to strengthen your community’s capacity to compete economically?

Public Land Managers:
  • Do you want to improve communications and partnerships with nearby communities?
  • Are you feeling the pressures of reduced budgets and changes in visitor patterns and interested in exploring creative solutions?


*If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, then consider putting together a community team and attending this course! We are available to provide assistance, so don't be shy!
