Sustainable and Resilient Economic Development for your Community: Using National Geographic Society’s GeoTourism Program as a Community Guide for Success

Friday, October 26, 1:30 - 3pm

Steve Haze, District Manager, Sierra Resource Conservation District
GeoTourism is defined as tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place – its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage, and the well-being of its residents.

No matter where you live, there are unique natural, historic and cultural attributes that makes your community and the greater region a special place. You need at least two or three items in which to make your community special and thrive. These include having a curiosity and a willingness to make a commitment – no matter how small. These are the “first steps”.

This session will begin the discussion as a journey for yourself, and how to find others in which to participate with you.
