Glacial Ridge National Wildlife Refuge: A Partnership from the BeginningHayek, Mark (Society for Range Management, 2012-08-01)The first time I visited the recently established Glacial Ridge National Wildlife Refuge (GRNWR), it became apparent to me that this was no ordinary conservation project. Upon glancing across the acres of restored tallgrass prairie and wetland basins, one begins to realize that a single organization could not have tackled this project alone. It is astounding to think over 30 partnering organizations were involved in the Glacial Ridge Project. Getting just two organizations pulling in one direction can be difficult at times and working with partners isn’t always easy, or successful, but the Glacial Ridge Project can provide all of us with insight on how to make partnerships work.
