Many Park-Wide Efforts to Build/Strengthen Interdependence

There are more gatherings like Common Ground Alliance and the ADK Futures Project at the community and regional level. These gatherings spark new, focused, projects and regional interactions allowing a positive sense of direction to emerge. Having a regional sense of alignment to a positive direction motivates a lot of people and groups to take independent action to move their projects and dreams forward.
