Provide a short description of the project including strategies, regional challenges, aims and specific project activities.: 

In celebration of our acceptance as an RCE and the development of our growing network, we hosted a large Launch celebration, attended by close to 200 people. Hosted at the World Forestry Center and funded by core sponsors and ticket sales, we had resource tables, slide show, speakers, music, art, poetry, a Native American ceremony, a children's room, and a lovely meal. We were particularly honored to have our RCE mentor, Lyle Benko, from RCE Saskatchewan, and representatives from RCE British Columbia join us.

6. Project status
This was a great success for all of our members and partners to celebrate together. We hope that the energy and good will will carry forward into this coming year.
