We Will Park County – Community Conversation

We invite you to join us for the 2023 We Will Park County - STATE OF THE COUNTY Community Convening.

We Will Park County is a citizen-informed initiative to articulate a common vision – thereby helping our community determine our shared future. Since launching this program in 2018, the Park County Community Foundation has conducted 3 county-wide surveys and compiled key data relevant to the most important issues facing Park County. The We Will Park County report & presentation will highlight our shared values and current data points.

Please join us for a special release of the 2023 We Will Park County report, including a review of what Park County residents think are the top issues facing our community.

This event also includes a conversation to explore how communities can work together to realize their desired future, with our 2023 We Will Park County special guests: Mike Dennison & Jordan Katcher.

MIKE DENNISON spent 30 years reporting on politics & public policy in Montana. His unique perspective will inform a conversation about Park County’s most pressing challenges and opportunities.
