The National Geographic Society's Center for Supporting Responsible Tourism USA has teamed up with the Oregon and Washington authorities to promote tours to the Central Cascades. The pilot project is designed to support the economic well-being of local communities, as well as to promote the values ​​of geotourism.

The first step in promoting new types of travel was the creation of the National Geographic "Geotourism Guide" for the region. The map will identify all local communities with private and public lands of the two states. The guide will be available in September 2009. At the same time, we are working on his Internet version.

The land in question is one of the most beautiful places in the United States. Central Cascades is the collective name for the mountain areas stretching between the national parks Mount Rainier and Crater Lake. All travelers are invited to create the guidebook – starting from local residents and ending with tourists who have chosen this or that corner. Anyone can apply for the application of a favorite place to a new map of the Central Cascades by March 29, eTurboNews reports.

In addition to the amateur geographers, a special commission is working on the project, which includes representatives of the authorities of the two states and environmental experts. The Board of Trustees of the guidebook considers all prospects for the development of geotourism in the region and intends to take care of preserving the natural and historical heritage of the region, local crafts, traditions of tourism and business.

Oregon and Washington want to work together to develop local rural tourism – as part of an overall strategy for economic development. Promotion of geotourism on the territory of the Central Cascades seems to local authorities the most correct policy aimed at increasing the economic growth of the region.
