THE WORKING GROUP
The Dàadzàii Vàn Working Group is tasked with implementing the work plan that will ultimately result in a park management plan.
The Working Group is comprised of one representative each, from Yukon government and Vuntut Gwitchin Government. The Yukon government member is Brian Johnston, a park planner with Yukon Parks Branch. The Vuntut Gwitchin Government representative is Rosa Brown, the lands manager for VGG.
The Working Group also relies on the in-depth knowledge and experience of other staff from both governments. In addition, an informal advisory group was established in Old Crow to ensure that local voices contributed to the vision statement and guiding principles for the park. These individuals bring a wealth of personal knowledge and experience in the region that provides the necessary perspective on the past and expresses the Gwich'in aspirations for the park's future.
Advisory group members discuss their knowledge of the Bell River watershed.
