The Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR) organized a session at the Tribal Lands Environmental Forum (TLEF), which focused on partnerships among tribes and non-tribal entities, including various state agencies, nonprofits, educational institutions and others. CCLR’s Ignacio Dayrit was assisted by many familiar faces in the audience who shared numerous partnership success stories. These included Lisa Griswold (Alaska Department of Conservation), Steve Gill (Idaho Department of Environmental Quality), Karen Homolac (Business Oregon), the Tribal TAB (Technical Assistance to Brownfields) team, and the unflappable Lily Bermejo (Salt River Pima Indian Community). During the session, several key points emerged.
