The Colorado State University’s Center for Protected Area Management (CPAM) and the Office of International Programs of the U.S. Forest Service are inviting applications for a 2.5 week seminar on Tourism and Protected Areas:

The Mobile Seminar on Planning and Managing Tourism in Protected Areas is an intensive, 2.5-week seminar, offered in English, for individuals involved in efforts to plan and manage tourism and outdoor recreation in protected areas. Co-sponsored by the Center for Protected Area Management (CPAM) and the U.S. Forest Service Office of International Programs, the seminar analyzes how tourism in protected areas can help create public 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.

The seminar runs from September 6 to September 22, 2018,  in Colorada, USA, and the deadline for applications is Monday May 11, 2018. Visit the Colorado State University website to get more information about the seminar and how to apply.
