The Central Cascades Geotourism Project Written by katie on January 13th, 2012

 

Oregon and Washington Tourism and the National Geographic Society have joined forces to bring an exciting new website and project that highlights the many beautiful places that the Central Cascades have to offer, and to promote sustainable tourism in our two states.

Via the Central Cascades Tourism Project: “Travel Oregon and Washington State Tourism have entered an exciting partnership with the National Geographic Society to advance geotourism in the Central Cascades region through the Geotourism MapGuide. This is a pilot project that both states will be incorporating into their larger sustainable tourism plans, and aims to stimulate rural development, cultivate local pride and foster stewardship of the region’s unique natural and cultural assets by identifying, documenting and sharing them through print and online media. Through this effort, we hope to create thriving communities to support sustainable travel in this region.”
