Meeting June 1 – 2, 2012 in Neebing, ON

You are invited to the Heart of the Continent Partnership’s quarterly meeting in Neebing, Ontario, June 1 and 2, 2012. Please scroll down to register.


Detour directions:

  • from Grand Portage –
  • from the Thunder Bay Marina –
  • Detour Note from Clara Butikofer: We’ll soon be welcoming you all to Neebing. Neebing is changing the culverts on Sturgeon Bay into Mink Mountain Lodge from May 23rd – June 11th so there is a detour.  I went on Map Quest and made these detour links. I set up the maps using real addresses: for some reason, that worked the best. The Copper Cliff Rd Address is our Mayor Ziggy Polkowski- so wave on the way by and 58 Island Ave is my house, which is just past Mink Mountain Lodge. You’ll see Mink Mountain Resort on Mink Mountain Road, right before you get to Island Avenue.Make sure everyone has their cameras ready. The wildlife have been very prevalent lately and the view is always magnificent.


The HOCP summer 2012 meeting will be June1/2 (Fri/Sat) in Neebing, Ontario.  We look forward to spending time in the home community of one of our Community Congress teams, just a stone’s throw from beautiful Lake Superior. We will meet from noon Friday through afternoon Saturday. The two-day agenda will include Friday meetings, a Friday evening lecture, and a Saturday field trip and volunteer clean-up of a local park. (The cleanup is the part of the action plan developed by the Neebing Team at HOPC’s  International Community Congress held last October.).
