This chapter provides a case study of the Grizzly Bear Dialogue Group, a prototype for stakeholder engagement designed both to resolve conflict and to carry out joint decision making surrounding the management of grizzly bears in Banff National Park. For years, participating stakeholders effectively practiced adaptive governance to clarify and sustain the common interest, but a series of events led to the problematic termination of the stakeholder prototype. This appraisal of the Grizzly Bear Dialogue Group's joint decision making provides several important lessons for creating, maintaining, and learning from community-based management processes.

Keywords:   prototype, adaptive governance, grizzly bears, appraisal, termination, innovation, community-based management, Grizzly Bear Dialogue Group, Banff National Park
