Thank you so much for registering for the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative’s 20th anniversary conference scheduled for September 24-26 in Waterton. I am very sorry to advise that Y2Y has made the difficult decision to cancel this conference. There were a variety of factors that led to this decision; primarily it was because our partners indicated that that a major conference is not needed at this time nor is it the best way for them to engage with Y2Y. Since assuming my role as President of Y2Y, I’ve learned that listening and responding to the needs of our partners is Y2Y’s greatest opportunity.

We are continuing with other 20th anniversary projects and activities that will be rolled out over the fall. We look forward to sharing the amazing progress toward the Y2Y vision that has been achieved with the help of over 300 partners. If you are not on our mailing list please provide us with your address by sending an email to

 If you have paid the registration fee, you will receive a full refund. If you have incurred any other costs associated with planning your attendance at the conference and are unable to recover them, please let us know at and we will do our best to help you.
