The Mobile Seminar on Planning and Managing Tourism in Protected Areas is an intensive, 2.5-week field-based training event for individuals working to promote sustainable tourism and outdoor recreation in parks and nature reserves worldwide. The seminar, co-offered by CSU’s Center for Protected Area Management and the US Forest Service International Programs Office, will build the skills of participants to plan and manage public use and outdoor recreation programs in protected areas to build support for conservation, contribute to public health, fund protected area management, and provide economic benefits to local communities and national economies. Ideal participants will be mid-level professional and technical personnel who work for governmental or nongovernmental conservation and tourism organizations, in academia, in the private sector, and in community-based and indigenous tourism and conservation initiatives in or near protected areas.
Overview and Methods
The seminar will begin on the campus of Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, next to the majestic Rocky Mountains. Most of the seminar will be spent in the field and on the road visiting protected areas managed by federal, state, and local governments; NGOs; and private landowners. Highlights include trips to Arapahoe-Roosevelt and Black Hills National Forest, Rocky Mountain, Badlands, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton National Parks, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, and visits to a western dude ranch, park gateway communities, a tribal reservation, and a variety of other local and regional tourism attractions.
