A National Geographic Geotourism MapGuide will be created for an area that stretches from Mt. Rainier National Park to Crater Lake National Park. The guide will be available in September along with an interactive website. Residents and visitors are invited to nominate landmarks, attractions, activities, events and local businesses that define the region’s character and appeal and that should be considered for inclusion in the guide. Nominations may be made through March 29 at www.thecentralcascades.com.
Creation of the Geotourism MapGuide is part of an effort to encourage tourism that sustains and enhances treasured places, providing a balance of economic growth and conservation.
